At least 15 small Zircon crystals rest in the syenite host rock of this specimen. They are in moderately good condition, as most are lightly damaged, and reach a maximum diameter of nearly 0.4" (1 cm). All have excellent tetragonal prismatic form, a deep, brick-red color and the standard adamantine luster. All are essentially translucent due to intense internal fracturing. A few bits of what might be biotite are also embedded in the host rock.
