as we are talking rare earth things, here are a few other ones which I think are beautiful

Image
Hingganite-(Y) from France, contains Yttrium
The crystal on that picture is only 0.5cm

Image
Limoriite-(Y) from France, crystal is 0.6cm

These two are quite rare species and I doubt they've ever been used as gems. Anyway, good crystals are so rare that it would be a shame to cut them.
