monazite
This rare earth mixture has been getting some press lately. However, I see no buyers offering to buy this stuff.
Anyone have a buyer for this? PM me if you want.

Re: monazite
If I were you I'd continue to stockpile it. It is probably only a question of time before someone creates an application for it. Rare earths aren't always rare but they are definitely unique!

Re: monazite
Thanks Fleng. I've heard of good prices on it, but can't find a buyer.

Found this article in Mining Magazine:
http://www.mining.com/2012/01/27/monetizing-monazite/

Also there are several listings on EBay- $4-5/gm is probably not worth your time. You could refine out the thorium, cerium and lanthanum if you had enough but that might not be practical. BTW "this rock emits alpha, beta, and gamma radiation and may pose a slight health risk if improperly stored or handled." It might be a good idea to store the ore in a protected place.
