A very sharp TN specimen of the rare yttrium phosphate xenotime, with excellent luster and a pleasing medium brown color. What makes this TN even even rarer is the fact that we have two crystals in parallel growth (don’t think it’s a twin) which is very unique since most of the time the crystals occur as singles. Super TN!
