Zircon in Biotite from Store Kufjord, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway
Size: 63x69x38 mm (257 gr.)
Here is a huge 33mm zircon crystal in biotite. Actually it is two crystals that are grown together, which you will see on one side of the crystal while the other side shows facets as one single crystal.
You will see there are some damamges in the middle of the crystal. It has a perfect top, and a perfect bottom, and it has sharp edges. It also has a great color.
On one side of the specimen you will also see some smaller zircon crystals (some damaged, and som undamaged).
Please watch video to get a better view:
Zircons from Seiland are by far the world greatest because of their deep orange/red color with transparent and gemmy areas.
The zircons are yellow SW and LW UV fluorescence.
The specimen was found late in the late 1990's by my father, Gunnar Mathisen.
