Specific gravity: 4.76 calculated
Colour: Steel grey
Černýite is a rare constituent of complex zoned pegmatites,
as a component of a very minor sulphide mineral suite. Associated minerals include
stannite, bismuth and
There are two co-type localities, the Tanco mine, Bernic Lake, Lac-du-Bonnet area, Manitoba, Canada, and the Hugo mine, Keystone, Keystone Mining District, Pennington county, South Dakota, USA. Černýite is a rare constituent of complex, zoned pegmatites at both localities. It occurs as small grains intergrown with kësterite. Associated minerals include stannite and various other sulphides (AM 64.653).
The Tanco is a complex lithium petalite granite pegmatite where the assemblages of minerals were deposited in succession from petalite + quartz to spodumene + quartz to eucryptite + quartz (R&M 92.2.153).
