The crystal structure of luzonite has been refined by means of three-dimensional least-squares methods, utilizing 121 reflection data obtained photographically with Cu radiation. The chemical composition determined with an x-ray microanalyser is Cu3(As0.64Sb0.36)S4. The lattice constants are a = 5.332 ± 0.005 Å, c = 10.570 ± 0.01 Å, and the space group is D2d11I[unk]2m. The structure is of the zincblende type, having a small deviation from the ideal structure. The interatomic distances are (As,Sb)–S = 2.265, Cu(1)–S = 2.304 and Cu(2)–S = 2.337 Å.
