There are so many wierd surface features on these crystals, I really can't tell if this indentation is natural or damage, but my guess is natural because it doesn't have any fresh looking, sharp edges.

Single gemmy Zircon crystal with a nice wine red to red brown coloration. Often times these Zircons have shallow surface grooves left by crystals of another mineral. This crystal is one of those, with lots of shallow surface grooves, but unlike the others, this one has some of the crystals still there! There are 4 partial crystals of this yellow/white mineral embedded in the sides of the Zircon. I have this mineral as an inclusion previously, but I've never seeon one like this with such large crystals of this mineral exposed at the surface.
