This zircon is one of the biggest and finest I have seen, the surface reveals the typical beautiful luster and the termination is absolutely undamaged. The piece has a slightly higher radioactivity of 1,4�Sv which is around 4 to 5 times higher then a normal natural radiation. This specimen seems to host 2 small Thorite crystals on the prism faces which cause the higher radiation as detected on normal zircons of this kind. A really great piece not often found in Burma.
