Here is a monster size zircon crystal in biotite.

This specimen is 157 grams, and measures 54 x 67 x 40 mm (height, lenght, width)

 

There is a huge crystal of 30 mm where bothe the top and the bottop is perfect.

It got some smaller cuts at the edge, and also a big mark after another zircon (all natural). There are also some biotite grown into the crystal.

 

In addition there are som smaller crystals (up to 12 mm) at the bottom, and most of them are completely undamaged. It will look good on display either you put the big crystal upwards or towards the side. In the last pictures and on the in the last part of the video I have turned the stone.

The zircons are yellow SW and LW UV fluorenscence.

 


Zircons from Seiland is by far the world top for their deep red color with transparent and gemmy areas.

 

The zircon site has been heavily mined in the '80s and '90s, and nowadays it is extremely difficult to collect decent specimens if not spending several days with heavy tools for digging. It is also at the border to the national park, so you would have problems for granting rights to do mining.

 

The specimen for sale is from the old days when it was still easy to find zircons.
