Small metallic loparite-(Ce) crystals in matrix from Manepakhk in the Lovozero massif.

A shiny single Loparite crystal from Karnasurt.

A perfect Loparite cube from Burpala, Transbaikal. In contrast to the Kola material it seems that Burpala
loparite is not twinned as often. Or is it just my sample....
