ID: 60053

Size: 40x48x37 mm (97 gr.)

You will see 2 nice twin crystals that have grown into each other. The biggest one is 13 mm and has a little damage in the top, and a minor nick at the middle. The other twin is totally undamaged.

The zircon on this specimen has a nice red shine.


Zircons from Seiland are by far the world greatest, because of their deep red color with transparent and gemmy areas. The zircon site has been heavily mined in the 80's and 90's, and nowadays it is extremely difficult to collect decent specimens without spending several days with heavy tools for collecting. It is also at the border to the Seiland National Park, so you would have problems for granting rights to do mining.The specimen for sale is from the the 1990's when it was still easy to find zircons, and before the National Park was established (in 2006).
