Zircon (rough and cut set)
Ambilipitiya, Sri Lanka
Miniature, 4.0 x 1.2 x 1.1 cm (Crystal), 11.40 ct (Gem)

4.0 x 1.2 x 1.1 cm (Specimen); 11.40 carats; 14.11 mm x 11.25 mm (Gem) - Good Zircon crystals are not common to find, let alone a good crystal matched with a beautiful gem from the same location. This rough and cut set includes a very well-formed and lustrous prismatic tetragonal crystal with smooth faces and good color along with a lively honey color "Oval Brilliant" cut gem with nearly eye clean clarity. The crystal is very good sized for such a sharp and lustrous Zircon, as they tend to become distorted, crazed and dull when they get this size. An unusual and fine set!
