A slightly translucent brown zircon crystal from the Miask (or Miass) deposit in the Urals, Russia.
The Miass copper deposit was discovered in 1773. During the 19th century, a small deposit of native gold was discovered there. The mineralogical diversity is very important.
Mineral from the naturalist dealer Deyrolle of Paris, delivered with label and original box.
