A relatively stout but perfect crystal of RARE species Dissakisite-Ce (former Allanite-Ce) from the well known French talcum mine of Trimouns near Luzenac. The single and well formed crystal here is very sharp edged and highly lustrous. The termiantion is superb and the contrast with the white Dolomite rhombs excellent. To get such a crystal ON MATRIX, though, and pristine as well...its almost unheard of! The zone of mining here is now gone, and these French rare species are fast becoming irreplaceable classics.
