new june 17

A very sharp group of Zircon crystals with a great history. Collected in Cheyenne Canyon in 1945 by the late Warren Johansson in the last weeks before he was drafted. While awaiting his call up, Warren went on a series of legendary bucket list mineral hunting trips. He had been clued in by Clarence Coil that, long ago, some Zircons had been found in that area but the locale was lost. Warren located this spot and dug several nice pieces, some of the best ever found. This specimen was one of Warrens favorites and was pictured for his memoir. Warren passed in 2015 still active collecting in his 90s. This specimen is a fine Colorado classic from a great field collector.
