Zhanghengite is a mineral consisting of 80% copper and zinc, 10% iron with the balance made up of chromium and aluminium. Its color is golden yellow. It was discovered in 1986 during the analysis of the Bo Xian Meteorite and is named after Zhang Heng, an ancient Chinese astronomer. As well as being an astronomer, Zhang Heng was also a geologist who invented the first seismograph. Although recognized as a valid mineral it apparently does not arise naturally on earth.
