Associated minerals are: bismuthinite (dominant), galenobismutite, cannizzarite and lillianite.
Minor amounts of Ag-Bi sulfosalts belonging to the andorite group, lillianite as well as pavonite homologous series.
The structures of the sulfosalt minerals lillianite, eskimoite, vikingite, ourayite, gustavite and heyrovskyite can all be interpreted as consisting of alternating galena-like modules twinned on (131) of the galena motif (Makovicky and Karup-Moller, 1977).
