The front of this specimen is largely covered by marialite crystals, mostly in parallel growth. At the top is one larger, doubly terminated marialite crystal with an allanite-(Ce) veneer from slight alteration, commonly seen in scapolite. A little pyrite on the front, too. Sorry the fluorescent photo is grainy but you get the idea! A handsome piece when propped up properly.
