View window 3.2 x 2.3 mm. Found Nov 1999. MOB coll. Nice pale pink typically twinned xls. Note: Like many REE bearing minerals, the apparent color of horváthite depends on the light source – in this case tungsten. But these xls are pinker than most – at least in my experience. Best in stereo – see child photo.
