Here you get a fine orangey red zircon crystal in matrix. Mostly dark red specimens are found from this locality, this one shows partly transparency, fine luster and a much brighter coloration The specimen was viewed under the microscope and was found to be fully intact. The schist matrix is very brittle and is mainly made up by pure biotite lamellas.
