Here are a small number of Zircons that i recently collected at the Saranac Mine, Primary Zircon Showing. I found about 40 Zircons on my hunt but these are a fair representation of what you can find there. They range in size from 3 millimeters to 1.2 centimeters. The largest in the bottom left is the 1.2 cm crystal. all are brown.black & double terminated. They are mildly radioactive, the largest gives off the most at about 0.4 microsviert an hour. From M. Adamowicz collection.
