Meneghinite is uncommon but widespread in hydrothermal veins, also in
contact metasomatic environments,
volcanogenic massive sulphide ore deposits, and
porphyry. Associated minerals include
tetrahedrite and gudmundite.
At Neudorf, Harzgerode, Harz, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, meneghinite has been found as acicular crystals to 1 mm in a jamesonite grain (Minrec 43.1.40).
The type locality is the Bottino mine, Stazzema, Lucca Province, Tuscany, Italy.
