The chemical formula of mineral Arsenolamprite is indicated by As. This is actually trimorphous with arsenic and pararsenolimprite. This mineral is most commonly found at its type of locality at Marienberg, Saxony, Germany. Mineral Arsenolamprite was named for the composition and the Greek for brilliance, in allusion to its luster. Arsenolamprite is known to crystallize in the orthorhombic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, this orthorhombic crystal system comprises crystals having three mutually perpendicular axes, of which all are of different lengths.

            Arsenolamprite is most commonly found showing perfect cleavage when evaluated with the aid of polarizing microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Arsenolamprite is usually colored dark gray and usually found more splendidly exhibited when viewed under polarizing microscope for mineralogy. The specific gravity measure of mineral Arsenolamprite is usually found 5.44 grams per cubic centimeters. Most crystals of mineral Arsenolamprite are found opaque in appearance. Mineral Arsenolamprite is also usually found showing brittle fracture, a fracture that is generally displayed by glasses and most non-metallic minerals. The crystal habits of the mineral as described in thee field of optical mineralogy usually include acicular forms occuring as needle-like crystals and massive forms showing uniformly distinguishable crystals forming large masses. The hardness measure of the mineral when it is evaluated using the Mohs scale method is usually found 2. Arsenolamprite is most commonly found showing metallic luster when viewed with the aid of polarizing microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Arsenolamprite is commonly found leaving a black streak when rubbed on white porcelain streak plate. Arsenolamprite is a weakly anisotropic mineral as evaluated between crossed nicols of polarizing microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Arsenolamprite is a non-radioactive mineral as evaluated.
