$29 In stockProduct description: At Colonial Gems we absolutely love Zircon! Radiant zircon is the oldest known gemstone, with some crystals dating back 4 billion years, and thanks to its tremendous fire and dispersion, it has been considered a less-expensive stand-in for diamond for many years, although zircon gives us many reasons to sing its praises and appreciate it in its own light. Natural Zircon has no relation or connection to "Cubic Zirconia" or any synthetic gems. It is a natural crystal and we only source, and sell the very best. Zircon occurs in a rainbow of rich hues, including blue, violet, green, brown, red and pink, brownish gold and yellow, as well as colorless. Increasingly rare honey-colored zircon from Cambodia is primarily the only zircon that can be heated to blue.
