Zircon with Sphene (Titanite)
Ratnapura
Sabaragamuwa Province, Sri-Lanka
8.3 x 5.3 x 3.8 CMM (cabinet)
price: $240
Dec 2018

A choice Sri-Lankan specimen. Crystals of elongated Zircons that are reddish purple in color are up to 2.6 CM on a complex matrix. The specimen includes Sphene crystals to 3.5 CM. Despite some small broken crystals and contacting the piece still presents very well. The luster is a slightly "melted" look but still glassy and bright. Ex collection of Chris Amo, this is a very well formed example of the elongated habit of these Zircons.
