Availability:

In stock


Fluorescent Zircon Crystal 4.  Also known as a Zircon Bomb.  Deep red brown colour in the sunlight and fluorescent yellow under UVA and UVC.  It is rare to get yellow fluorescent minerals let alone in Crystal form.  A super collectors specimen and rare.  Classic location too.  I spoke to the Professor about the fluorescence source and he suspects it comes from a mild form of radiation.  Thus also not a good idea to cut these gemstones into pendant, as it is worn close to the Thyroid Gland.

Dimensions:
6.1cm x 5.2cm x 4.4cm, 234g.

Location:
Mud Tank, Northern Territory, Australia.

Zirconium Silicate:
ZrSiO4.

Zircons reputation has suffered of late due to the introduction of a diamond simulant.  So for the record, zircon is not the same material as the artificial gem material Cubic Zirconia (or CZ).  Zircon can make a very attractive and affordable gemstone.  Zircon is the December Birthstone.
