Microprobe studies have facilitated recognition of the first documented occurrence of geocronite from Isik Dagi (Ankara, Turkey). While yenerite remains a discredited species along the PbS-Sb (sub 2) S (sub 3) compositional join, our analyses show significant arsenic as did the original analyses for yenerite; thus, this name might be retained for arsenic-bearing varieties of boulangerite.
