Colour:
Colourless (internal); ochre-yellow (surfaces)
Name:
After P.C. Weibye, Norwegian mineralogist.
An inadequately defined material from Lille Arøya (Midtre Arøy; Øvre Arøy; Övre-Arö), Langesundsfjorden, Larvik, Vestfold, Norway.
A sample labeled weibeyite and collected by W.C. Brøgger in 1902 was found by Sverdrup et al. (1959) and Saebø (1963) to be bastnäsite pseudomorphous after ancylite. Some material may also be ancylite.
