Lollingite has been found at Huanggang in small amounts, and was frequently confused with and sold as arsenopyrite. In Tucson this year, a small quantity of specimens were available (and correctly identified)-- this was one of the richest single specimens I saw, consisting entirely of lollingite sprays.
Lollingite is a rare iron arsenide, typically found as masses and only rarely as proper crystals. This is a very good crystalline example of the species.
