Cerfluorite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Ca,Ce)F2+x
Name:
The term cerfluorite was first used by Vogt (1914) on a synthetic Ce-bearing fluorite.

Later Sverdrup (1968) analyzed a sample of a possible yttrofluorite from Hundholmen, Norway and found that the investigated material was not a yttrofluorite (content of Ce > Y) but rather a yttrocerite or a possible cerfluorite.
A variety of Fluorite

A Ce-bearing fluorite. Known as a synthetic phase.
