A large, euhedral crystal of this rare earth mineral species, from one of the historic localities for such pieces…but they are rarely seen today! Though contacted just on the back face, it is complete on front and sides! Valued at $750 and perhaps some folks will appreciate the size and rarity of this treasure. 5.3 x 4.8 x 1.9 cm
