About Allanite-(La)Hide

Thomas Allan
Formula:
{CaLa}{Al2Fe2+}(Si2O7)(SiO4)O(OH)
Colour:
Black, with brownish reflections
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
6
Specific Gravity:
3.93
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named in 2006 by Paolo Orlandi and Marco Pasero for its relationship to other allanite group minerals, with lanthanum as the dominant rare earth element. The root name is for Thomas Allan (1777, Edinburgh, Scotland - 1833, Morpeth, Northumberland, England), Scottish banker and mineralogist who first described what is now allanite-(Ce). Samples fitting the description of allanite-(La) were described earlier and the name was recommended by Levinson (1966) but a proper species description was not given until 2006.
Allanite Group of the Epidote Supergroup. The La-analogue of Allanite-(Ce).

The large well formed crystals of "allanite-(La)" from the Nueva Vizcaya Mine, Spain published by Del Tanago et al. (2002) as “macroscopic La-dominant allanite and REE-rich epidote crystals” are zoned crystals containing allanite with Ce>La,allanite with La>Ce, and REE-rich epidote. Only thin zones within the crystals contain sufficient REE to qualify as allanite-(La), and the La dominant material were too scarce to adequately describe allanite-(La) as a new mineral.
