On The Jeweler's Bench. Zircon.     Date added: 03/21/2016
 

Gemstones. Zircon is the birthstone for December.

Don’t confuse Zircon with man-made cubic zirconia. Zircon is a natural gemstone found in the crust of the Earth among igneous rocks such as granite. Zircon is found all over the world in Australia, Russia, Italy, Norway, Cambodia, Africa, Canada, Maine, Colorado, and Texas. Australia leads the world in mining Zircon. A Zircon fragment found there is the oldest known object on Earth at 4.4 billion years old.

Zircon can be found in many colors such as red, pink, brown, black, green, blue, gray, white (colorless), and yellow. Red Zircon is the most rare, and some of the finest Blue Zircon comes from Cambodia. Yellow Zircon is known as hyacinth, a name given long ago in ancient Greece.

Zircon is very hard and durable. The dispersion value (fire) of Zircon is 0.039, which is just below that of a Diamond. Gem quality White Zircon is a perfect alternative for a White Diamond and Champagne Zircon is similar in color to a Champagne or Cognac Diamond. With Jewels Luxus Jewelry, you can look like a million bucks without spending a fortune.
