Often slightly radioactive due to minor U and/or Th contents; therefore often metamict.
System:MonoclinicColour:Brown to black
Lustre:Vitreous, ResinousHardness:5½ - 6
Member of:Epidote Group
Name:Named in 1810 by Thomas Thomson for Thomas Allan (1777-1833), Scottish mineralogist, who first observed the mineral.
The Levinson Rulle suffix, -(Ce), was later added to designate this species as the Ce-dominant member among all allanites.
