Although known to man from the earliest days of civilization, zircon is perhaps the most underrated stones among other fancy, colorful stones. Zircon is a naturally occurring mineral made from zirconium silicate. Although colorless zircon is purest form of the zircon and resembles the diamond, the gemstone also comes in a myriad of colors like shades of blue, green, yellow and most commonly brown. The intense luster and strong fire of zircon gives the stone a magnificent sparkle. this is because it is a doubly-refractive stone, and one of the few stones that gives a diamond a run for its money in the "sparkle" category.
In the Eleventh century, zircon was regarded as the talisman for travelers, protecting them from injury, disease and insomnia, as well as guarantying a warm reception wherever their travels would take them. During the Middle Ages, zircon was believed to induce better sleep, shun away evil spirits, and promote wealth, honor and wisdom. Many scholars are of the opinion that zircon got its name from the Arabic words ‘zarkun’, meaning “cinnabar” or “vermilion.” Others believe that the source of the name comes from is the Persian word zargun, or “gold colored.” The blue variety of zircon was a special favorite during the Victorian times, an era when fine gems were frequently used to be adorned in English estate jewelry dating from the 1880s.
It must be noted that zircon is different from cubic zirconium, which is a synthetic lab-created stone to be used as an affordable diamond imitator. Blue Zircon took an unfortunate turn in popularity after th einvention of the lab-created diamond synthetic took the name zirconium, too many people mistook zircon for zirconium. This is a shame because for far too long now, the natural, radiating beauty of zircon has been underused and underappreciated.
