Miniature, 3.4 x 1.4 x 1.4 cm
Thabeikyin, Mogok, Sagaing District, Mandalay Division, Burma (Myanmar)
Ex. William (Bill) Larson
This is an approximately 23-gram specimen of TOTALLY GEMMY, transparent, olive-green zircon! It is unusual for both the size, the color, and the translucency, and is a major Mogok gem crystal specimen, thus. The piece has a very sharp and equant termination, though exhibits slight water-worn surfaces characteristic of many gems from the Mogok gem tracts. Old specimen, from finds of the mid to late 1990s, sold by "Burma Bill" Larson from his collection to a collector at that time. I have seen no other comparable. In halogen lights it looks a bit yellowish, and in fluorescents (as shown) a bit more green in color.
