Mineralpedia Details for Sterryite
Named for Thomas Sterry Hunt, the very first mineralogist with the Geological Survey of Canada in Ottawa. Found at its type locality near Madoc in Ontario, Canada as a hydrothermal mineral in marble, Sterryite is also purportedly found in Russia as well. Sterryite is associated with veenite and guettardite.

Sterryite from Taylor pit, Madoc, Ontario, Canada
Extremely rare lead sulfantimonide thus far found in one worldwide locality, the Taylor pit at Madoc in Ontario. The locality, which by all accounts is exhausted (Mindat) also yielded nine new species including veenite and guettardite. This specimen contains very visible elongated, fibrous bundles or thin lamellae to 3mm in hydrothermally altered marble.
