The chemical formula of mineral Junoite is indicated by Pb3Cu2Bi8(S,Se)16. Junoite is known to be of hydrothermal origin. This mineralis commonly found at its type of locality in the Juno mine, Tennant Creek, Northern Territory, Australia. Junoite was named for the Juno mine, Australia, in which it was first found. Junoite is known to crystallize in the monoclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, the monoclinic system of crystal formation comprises crystals having three axes of unequal lengths. Two of which are usually found in a position that is oblique or not perpendicular to one another. However, both of which are commonly found perpendicular to the third axis. Junoite is known to have good cleavage in one direction when mineral is evaluated with the aid of petrographic polarizing microscope. It is commonly found colored gray in hand sample. The density measure of Junoite is usually found 6.77 grams per cubic centimeters per cubic centimeters. Most crystals of mineral Junoite are found opaque in appearance. The hardness measure of mineral Junoite is usually found ranging from 3.5 to 4 when evaluated using the Mohs scale method. Mineral Junoite is usually found with metallic luster in reflected light of polarized microscope. Junoite is strongly anisotrophic. It is showing creamy white interference color. Junoite is known to be strongly pleochroic exhibiting colors from cream to gray with green and mauve tints. Mineral Junoite is found to be not radioactive when chemically evaluated.
