Calcopirita

Características generales


Datos generales


Fórmula: CuFeS2
Sistema de cristalización: Tetragonal
Lustre: Metálico
Color: Amarillo-latón, a menudo con iridiscencias
Dureza: 3,5-4
Rareza: común
Serie: Chalcopyrite-Eskebornite Series


La calcopirita es la principal mena de cobre. Forma generalmente masas metálicas y compactas, de color amarillo a menudo iridiscentes, aunque raramente aparece formando cristales estriados tetragonales. Se encuentra en rocas ígneas y de su alteración se forman otros minerales de cobre; también en pegmatitas, zonas de caliza de metamorfismo de contacto y filones de sulfuros. A veces tiene plata como impurezas.

Clasificación

Estado IMA: Válido. Descrito con antelación a 1959 (pre-IMA), se considera un mineral clásico o histórico (grandfathered)

Nickel-Strunz : 02.CB.10a
  • 2: Sulfuros y sulfosales
  • 02.C: Sulfuros con metal, M:S = 1:1 (y similar)
  • 02.CB: Con Zn,Fe,Cu,Ag,Au,etc

Dana 8th ed. : 2.9.1.1

Etimología:

Del griego khalkós, cobre y pyrós, fuego o pirita, literalmente "pirita de cobre".



Formación y ambiente

Común en filones de sulfuros y rocas ígneas.

Es un mineral muy común en los filones de sulfuros diseminados por las rocas ígneas. Puede formarse y encontrarse en: rocas pegmatitas neumatolíticas, rocas hidrotermales de alta temperatura, depósitos de metamorfismo de contacto, así como constituyente primario de rocas ígneas básicas. En los yacimientos de cobre suele ser el principal mineral de este metal que aparece.

Propiedades fisicas

Hábito: Los cristales son pseudotetraedros, corrientemente con recubrimiento de tetraedrita o tennantita. La mayoría de las veces se la encuentra en forma masiva y las pocas veces que se ven los cristales están muy maclados y aplanados.
