Zircon Zircon

I

am Zircon and since Medieval times, I have brought wisdom, honor and wealth to those who possess me. I am especially prized for protecting travelers from harm, and even today, the Hindus believe I can stimulate spiritual growth.

The name, Zircon, probably comes from the Persian word zargun which means "gold-colored." The fiery, brilliance of zircon can rival any gemstone. The affordability of its vibrant greens, sky blues, and pleasing earth tones contributes to its growing popularity today.

Zircon is mined in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Thailand, and other countries. Because it can be colorless, green, blue, yellow, brown, orange, dark red, and all the colors in between, it is a popular gem for connoisseurs who collect different colors or zircon from different localities.

Zircon jewelry should be stored carefully because although this ancient gem is hard, facets can abrade and chip. Clean with mild dish soap: use a toothbrush to scrub behind the stone where dust can collect.

Zircon is the December birthstone and is associated with the astrological signs of Taurus and Scorpio.
