Monazite-(Ce) with Chamosite

Pizzo Giübin, Sella lake, Gotthard region, Ticino, Switzerland


Monazite forming a perfect and sharply edged, honey-yellow twin crystal group (2 mm), grown besides black-green Chamosite and little Sagenite on snow-white aplite gneiss. A visually very attractive specimen from a large old Rock Crystal vein, its hanging-wall yielding the largest and best Monazite crystals of the Ticino region (cf. LAPIS 1/2018). Found in July 2017, ex Stefan Weiß collection
