Colour: Light yellow to pinkish-brown
There are two co-type localities, an unnamed locality and the Hackman Valley, both at Yukspor Mt, Khibiny Massif, Murmansk Oblast, Russia. Here ferricerite-(La) occurs as a late-stage, low-temperature secondary phase in a symmetrically zoned, aegirine-natrolite-microcline vein in gneissose foyaite. Associated minerals include aegirine, anatase, ancylite-(Ce), barylite, catapleiite, cerite-(Ce), chabazite-Ca, edingtonite, fluorapatite, galena, ilmenite, microcline, natrolite, sphalerite, strontianite and vanadinite (HOM).
