Large, lustrous dark green aegirine crystals are associated with what I believe is a huge psuedomorph of Fe/Ti oxides (dominantly ilmenite and goethite) after an REE mineral, most likely rhabdophane/monazite. While the aegirine crystals are large and aesthetic, the association with the perfectly-placed REE mineral psuedomorph make this an outstanding specimen for the serious collector of rare species and pegmatite minerals.
