Rubidium diholmium tricopper pentasulfide, RbHo2Cu 3S5, crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Cmcm and is isostructural with RbSm2Ag3Se5. In the asymmetric unit, the site symmetries of atoms Rb, Cu1, and S2 are mm and those of the other atoms are m. The structure has a three-dimensional tunnel framework, with tunnels built from HoS6 octahedra and CuS4 tetrahedra. The tunnels are filled with Rb atoms.
