7TA-9NUZircon

Multiple photos available
Hillside xenocryst locality, Vernon Co., New South Wales, Australia

Largest Crystal Size: 5 mm

A loose euhedral zircon xenocryst (right) is shown sitting next to the basalt mold (left) that originally contained the crystal. Crystal faces of the zircon crystal are readily visible in the basalt mold which forms a depression up to 3mm deep.

The zircon was found by splitting a piece of basalt with a geological hammer. It popped off the matrix during the splitting process.

Braemar sapphire deposit, Elsmore, Gough Co., New South Wales, Australia

Largest Crystal Size: 8 mm

Euhedral sapphire (blue) and zircon (colourless, yellowish & reddish brown) crystals selectively picked from the production of a commercial sapphire mine in the late 1980s. The sapphires show exceptional light to medium blue natural colouring that this site is known for.

These specimens came from the processing of weathered volcaniclastic rocks.
