|Bastnaesite from the 3M Big Rock Quarry, Pulaski County, Arkansas. This specimen has 8 of these tabular bastnaesite crystals on it. I collected the fragment from the central dike rock border pegmatite in 1986. It just popped out as I was breaking rock. I never found another fragment in that particular material! Imaged with a Canon 40D, 30mm B&L lens and stacked with Combine Z. FOV about 1.5 X 2mm |
