Monazite is a reddish-brown phosphate mineral containing 35-71% rare-earth oxides. It is one of the main rare earth ores.

Most common is monazite-(Ce), (Ce,La,Nd,Th)PO4, but there are also monazite-(La), (La,Ce,Nd)PO4, monazite-(Nd), (Nd,La,Ce)PO4, and monazite-(Sm), (Sm,Gd,Ce,Th)PO4.
Chinese standards XB/T 104-2015 (mining product monazite concentrate) and GB/T 18114.1-2010 (TREO content)
Note: Specifications are known to vary, as this is a natural product.
