Additional recommended knowledge
In the orthorhombic crystal system, meneghinite has a Mohs hardness of 2½, one perfect cleavage and a conchoidal fracture. It is a blackish lead-grey in colour and gives a black shining streak. Its lustre is metallic.
Discovered in the Italian Province of Lucca in 1852, it is named after Giuseppe Meneghini (1811-1889) of the University of Pisa, who first observed the species. The Bottino Mine in Lucca is the type locality.
