Abstract: Herzenbergite, SnS, was found in dykes in three granite pegmatite fields in north-central Sweden. It occurs as erratic replacements of cassiterite. The formation of herzenbergite was probably triggered by local interactions with fluids from sulphide-bearing graphitic schists located in the immediate vicinity of the pegmatite dykes.
