From the new find in November 2004. Andorite is lead, silver, antimony sulfosalt and was named for the Hungarian mineral collector Andor von Semsey (1833-1923), who holds a remarkable distinction for having two mineral species named after him (andorite and semseyite). These specimens were extracted from the same vein system worked by Federico Ahlfeld. This specimen consists of layered, steel-grey, semi-lustrous crystals of the rare lead, silver, antimony sulfosalt Andorite.
