Brilliant White Zircon

Natural Zircon

Zircon has been used in jewelry for thousands of years. Widely abundant in many natural colors it has become confused in modern times with the synthetic Diamond material, cubic zirconia. The only point of similarity is that colorless Zircon is frequently used as a natural Diamond substitute due to its high level of brilliance and intensive fire, yet at a fraction of the price of natural Diamond. This is the main reason Blossomjewels frequently uses and promotes the virtues of Brilliant White Zircon in many of its pieces and collections, but particularly ‘[email protected]’ and ‘[email protected]’.

Brilliant White Zircon is typically the result of accepted trade heating treatment at temperatures above 900 degrees. 

Zircon has been considered as an alternative birthstone for the month of December.

 

 

Important locations from which Zircon is sourced include Madagascar, Brazil, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar, Australia and Vietnam. Blossomjewels typically sources its Zircon from Madagascar, Thailand and Vietnam.

Zircon is reasonably hard with a Mohs’ hardness rating of between 6.5 to 7.5/10, so it is reasonably well suited for everyday wear. This being said, Zircon can be brittle and care must be taken so it is not exposed to the risk of hard knocks. For this reason Blossomjewels typically ensures Zircon is used in settings offering a high level of protection around edge facets.
