Ex. Herb Obodda; Robert Nowakowski; Gerald C. Herfurth
A remarkably large, sharp and lustrous crystal of zircon from one of the most classic old locales for the species, which has produced some of the finest textbook examples we know of. For a zircon, it doesn't get much better than this in the size range! Complete floater except only for a bit of matrix adhering to the back, this crystal is nearly perfect. ex Gerald C Herfurth Collection #2530, Herb Obodda, Robert Nowakowski Collection #RN70. Mass is a very hefty 515 grams.
