- n. A fluocarbonate of the cerium metals and calcium, CeFCa(CO3)2, occurring in wax-yellow rhombohedral crystals. It is found in southern Greenland and is related to parisite.
“Scanning electron microprobe using qualitative analyses and semi-quantitative spectroscopy identified bastnaesite, parasite-synchisite as the main minerals of interest.”
“These minerals define a series of REE fluorocarbonates characterized by increasing REE content within their structures from synchisite to bastnaesite.”
“By contrast, Dotson Ridge is characterized by steeply dipping pegmatitic and aplitic dikes variably mineralized with REE minerals including kainosite, xenotime, allanite, bastnaesite, thalenite, synchisite, and fergusonite.”
