Summary:In the dolostone quarry at Redziny (Rudawy Janowickie Range, SW Poland), inside the vein of phlogopite, a few-kilogram nodule of native bismuth was found. Native bismuth is accompanied by Bi sulphotellurides forming platy crystals up to 1 cm across. X-ray powder diffraction and electron microprobe methods revealed the presence of joseite Bi4TeS2 and another phase with the formula Bi3TeS. The latter corresponds well with protojoseite described by Zavialov and Begizov (1983) and still not accepted as a mineral species by the Commission on New Minerals and Mineral Names IMA.
