This wonderful specimen features a large, translucent reddish-brown single crystal of Bastnasite-(Ce) on granite matrix from Zagi Mountain, Pakistan. Zagi Mountain has produced what are by far the world's best examples of this unusual rare earth element mineral. Most are single crystals off matrix however, so this nicely-balanced matrix specimen is exceptional for the species. From the noted collection of Gerhard Wagner of Germany.
