Samsonite is a silver manganese antimony sulfosalt mineral with formula Ag4MnSb2S6. It crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system with a typical slender radiating prismatic habit. It is metallic black to steel black with no cleavage and a brittle to conchoidal fracture. In thin fragments it appears reddish brown in transmitted light and also leaves a red streak. It is soft, Mohs hardness of 2.5, and has a specific gravity of 5.51.

It was first described in 1910 for an occurrence in the Samson Vein of the Sankt Andreasberg silver mines, Harz Mountains, Germany.

Everyone's after the ultimate weapon --"nanomites" contained in a suitcase (Samsonite?) that can burst into clouds of what look like bad-ass termites that devour everything in sight in disaster scenes that look like they were recycled from "The Mummy." That movie and this one share a director, Stephen Sommers, who also inexplicably places the Joes' HQ beneath the Great Pyramids (hell, sand worked before), uses the guy who played the Mummy as a baddie named Zartan, and even dusts off Brendan Fraser, who pops up in the Joes' training center but has nothing to do but watch G.I. Joe for five minutes. Which is about how long most viewers are going to be able to stand it. Ana goes to much effort to steal back the nanomite Samsonite for her boss, a Scottish arms dealer, even though he's the guy who made the thing in the first place. He also keeps forgetting to check whether his baby's LoJack is on and giving away his position.








Samsonite owes its start to Colorado native Jesse Shwayder. After growing up in the American West during the late 1800s, Shwayder was working in New York as a salesman for the Seward Trunk and Bag Company by his mid-20s. He was making a lot of money, but he missed Colorado and longed to pursue his dream of starting his own business. Thus, Shwayder quit his job when he was 28 and moved back to Denver. Shortly thereafter, on March 10, 1910, he founded the Shwayder Trunk Manufacturing Company with his life's savings of $3,500. With a work force of 10 men, Shwayder began manufacturing what were known as suitcases in a 50-by-125-foot room that he had rented in downtown Denver. The management philosophy he adopted to guide the firm from day one, according to company annals, was the Golden Rule ("Do unto others ..."), to which Shwayder adhered tenaciously.

Shwayder Trunk revenues rocketed to $300,000 by 1924. In that year, the brothers moved their operation into a gleaming new 80,000-square-foot factory in south Denver; that plant was gradually expanded to include a total of 500,000 square feet. The plant was organized to operate on an assembly-line basis, and even incorporated a state-of-the art conveyor system to transport products and materials in the plant. The company boasted in its literature that it built suitcases the same way that Ford built automobiles.
