Abstract (in english)
   Toulmin (1963) determined that pyrargyrite-proustite forms a complete solid solution from solidus temperature up to 300°C, but that a miscibility gap may exists below 300°C. Keighin and Honea (1969) determined that most natural samples of pyrargyrite contain small amounts of arsenic. Chemical composition were examined by electron probe microanalyses. Traverses of several pyrargyrite grains from Příbram ore district showed no systematic chemical variation or zoning. The mean composition is (Ag 3.05 Cu 0.01) (Sb 0.93 As 0.02) S 2.98. Pyrargyrite from Třebsko and Měděnec have intermediate composition in the solid solution series. Antimony and arsenic concentrations are the main variables: Ag 3.01 (Sb 0.62 As 0.36) S 3.00 and Ag 3.08 (Sb 0.47 As 0.47) S 3.00, respectively. Although copper is not a normal component of the pyrargyrite structure, minor amounts of copper to 0.21 wt. pour cent was recorded in pyrargyrite from Pošepný vein from Vrančice deposit.
   Proustite from Jáchymov and Měděnec have similar composition: Ag 3.02 As 0.98 Sb 0.01 S 3.00. Optical properties of pyrorgyrite or proustite are in accordance with lineary data. The X-ray diffraction data and cell parameters agrre well graph presented by Toulmin (1963) and Hess et al. (1986)
