Kingman Feldspar Mine, Mohave County, Arizona, U.S.A.
A formless chunk of Allanite makes up this small specimen. As no crystal form is discernable, it is difficult to say that it is damaged, though there are several fresh breakage surfaces on it. Its intact surfaces have a moderately dark brown color and a dull waxy luster. The breakage surfaces, on the other hand, show a black color with faint brown highlights in some places, and a bright pearly luster. As far as I can tell, the material is thoroughly opaque. There is no associated host rock present.
