Item Description

Florencite is an ultra rare, rare-earth, cerium-rich phosphate. A huge, for the species, 7 mm, doubly terminated, straw-yellow, florencite crystal is aesthetically set on the side of a well-terminated, euhedral quartz crystal. This is a very fine combination specimen, including this rare phosphate and is not diminished by the bit of termination wear on the quartz crystal. Valued at $300-450.
