Collection: Xenotime

Xenotime describes a group of several closely related phosphates, arsenates, and vanadates composed of rare earth elements. The term is generally used to describe the most common member of the group, Xenotime-(Y), which is the yttrium phosphate end member of this series. Other, rarer members of the Xenotime series include Xenotime-(Yb), Cherovite, and Wakefieldite.

Xenotime may contain radioactive elements in its structure, and therefore may have some level of mild radioactivity. It frequently forms together with Zircon, and may even grow together in the same crystals as epitaxial overgrowths.
