Huge Bastnasite(ce) from the Zagi Mountains, Pakistan. Found in December 2007. This is the largest complete Bastnasite(ce) on matrix ever discovered. The specimen it total measures 190mm x 125mm, but the main crystal is an amazing 36mm x 30mm. This is one of those specimens you just can't stop looking at. Collection of Craig Mercer.
