    Primes in Quadratic Fields

    Im still having trouble of the notion of primes in quadratic fields.

    How do I find a quadratic integer in \mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{-1}) which is prime, but whose norm is not prime.

    Thanks.

    I answered a similar question here.

    Therefore 7 with N(7) = 7^2 is such an example.
