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.
A doubly terminated crystal of Zircon with lustrous faces and classic form. From the Ratnapura district of Sri-Lanka, this is a dark red-brown under strong light but looks black in most conditions. Some well formed growth hillocks and rounded cavities add interest.
