Here is an interesting specimen! The large aegirine crystal on this cluster of microcline crystals is peppered with small zircon crystals. Actually, zircon crystals are all over this piece, most prominently on the aegirine. Nice fluorescence. Very good example of the prime mineralogy from this interesting area of the world!
