Item Description

A very large and rare LOCATION specimen for a Brazilian zircon! This is an amazing piece for what it is, with a history through two important Brazilian collections. Well-formed, brownish, tetragonal crystals of zircon, showing sub-parallel growth and ending gracefully in complex terminations, make it a display quality piece. Originally thought to be a xenotime, later re-analyzed by Matioli in his lab. FOund 12-15-1993. Valued $1500-1800
