Here are some zircon crystals, photographed through KT's USB led microscope, 10X magnification, crystals are about 1.5 mm across. First picture is natural light, tan crystals. Second image is with unfiltered LW UV 365 nm light. Last image is filtered LW UV 365 nm light. Zircon is zirconium silicate and typically fluoresces an orange color. Specimen from Vishnevye Mountains, Chelyabinsk OBlast, Ural, Russia. Enjoy!
