Violarite, a violet-grey sulphide of iron and nickel, ideal formula FeNi 2 S 4 ( weight percent Ni), is a moderately uncommon cubic ore mineral, found in some nickel deposits. This sample is from the Vermilion mine west of Sudbury, Ontario*. Seen in photomicrograph with yellow millerite (NiS). The violarite has a characteristic grey colour with a violet tint, and displays cubic .

The Sudbury Basin / ˈ s ʌ d b ə r i /, also known as Sudbury Structure or the Sudbury Nickel Irruptive, is a major geological structure in Ontario, is the third-largest known impact crater or astrobleme on Earth, as well as one of the oldest.

The crater formed billion years ago in the Paleoproterozoic : Ma, Paleoproterozoic. Ore deposits that are associated with mafic to ultramafic igneous rocks can generally be divided into those where the metals of interest are hosted in oxide minerals and those where the metals of interest are held as sulfides or are strongly associated with sulfides (e.g., PGE alloys, arsenides, bismuthinides).

The oxide ore bodies include stratiform, podiform, and breccia-related. Sulphide is a settlement in the municipality of Tweed, Hastings County, Ontario, Canada, about kilometres ( mi) west of the community of Hungerford and 8 kilometres (5 mi) northeast of the village of Tweed.

Nickel Sulfide Ores and Impact Melts: Origin of the Sudbury Igneous Complex presents a current state of understanding on the geology and ore deposits of the Sudbury Igneous Complex in Ontario, Canada.

As the first complete reference on the subject, this book explores the linkage between the processes of meteorite impact, melt sheet formation, differentiation, sulfide 4/5(2). A more positive role may have been played by sulphide minerals in the emergence of life on Earth; although speculative, such theories have been developed following the discoveries of ocean-floor hydrothermal systems generating large volumes of sulphide minerals and associated with novel life forms and ecosystems.
