Natural Parisite

Parisite is a rare mineral composed of cerium, lanthanum and calcium fluoro-carbonate. It is found as crystals which belong to the trigonal or monoclinic pseudo-hexagonal system and may form as single or double pyramids terminated by the basal planes. The faces of the pyramids are typically striated horizontally and parallel to the cleavable basal plane. The crystals are brown to light-brown in color and usually translucent with a greasy lustre. The hardness is 4.5 and the specific gravity is 4.36
