This is an unusual radioactive zircon. The crystal or aggregate has geode-like shape with one round surface one face with radial pattern. This zirconium silicate is rich in Hafnium (around 7 percent). The radiation is caused by Uranium and Thorium content. The gamma radiation is 3 µSv/h and the total dosage is 2,7 µSv/h.
