About Zircon

Zircon is perhaps one of the most misunderstood gemstones today. People confuse it with lab created Cubic Zirconia. Cubic Zirconia is a cheap, synthetic diamond substitute that resembles colorless Zircon and has a similar sounding name. But zircon is a genuine natural gem and has a brilliance that beats even diamond. Its brilliant luster, fire and bright hues make it an enjoyable addition to any Jewelry or gem collection.

The fire in Zircon, called dispersion, is caused by light entering the gemstone and separating into a prism of rainbow colors. Possessing dispersion approaching that of diamond, the brilliance of Zircon is second to none.

Zircon comes in wide range of colors; blue orange red or even colorless color. It has appeared in literature under a variety of names including Jargon (Yellow Zircon), Jacinth (Red Zircon), Matara Diamond (White Zircon), Starlite (Blue Zircon), Hyacinth (Blue Zircon) and Ligure.

Zircon, the birthstone for December, is first mentioned in the ancient Indian tale of the Kalpa Tree. Described by Hindu poets as the ultimate gift to the gods, it was a bright glowing tree with bejeweled leaves of Zircon. Jewish legends say that Zircon was the name of the guardian angel sent to watch over Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
