A quaternary tin(IV) antimony(III) sulfide decorated by lanthanum(III) ethylenediamine complexes, namely, [La(en)<sub>4</sub>SbSnS<sub>5</sub>]<sub>2</sub>·0.5H<sub>2</sub>O (<b>1</b>; en = ethylenediamine), has been solvothermally synthesized and structurally, thermally, and optically characterized. Its structure features an isolated hexanuclear molecule of [La(en)<sub>4</sub>SbSnS<sub>5</sub>]<sub>2</sub>. The intermolecule hydrogen-bond interactions result in a three-dimensional supramolecular network, which remains intact upon dehydration.
