Abstract

Preliminary data on the occurrence and chemical composition were obtained for phase CuCrS2 found in Uakit iron meteorite (IIAB). This phase may be a potentially new mineral for meteorites. It was observed in small phosphide-sulfide inclusions in kamacite in association with daubreelite, troilite and schreibersite. Chemical composition is Cu0.94Fe0.09Cr0.97S2.00. It is suggested that in similarity with a synthetic phase, the Uakit mineral may be trigonal CuCrS2 (R3m or R3m) and may belong structurally to the caswellsilverite group.
