An excellent large cabinet-size specimen of well-formed barrel-shaped Parisite-(Ce) crystals on microcline and aegirine crystals from Mount Malosa, Zomba District, Malawi. This well-known peralkaline granite pegmatite locality has produced what are probably the world's best crystals of this unusual REE carbonate mineral, and this is a fine large example in which the parisite crystals are fairly minimally altered, compared to the usual Fe-oxide psuedomorphs after parisite from this locality. A great specimen of a rare species from the noted collection of Uli Bahmann.
