What is Natural Zircon?

What is Natural Zircon?

"Zircon is a colorful gem with high refraction and fire that’s unfairly confused with cubic zirconia." —Gemological Institute of America 


Zircon is an important gemstone of many colors, and is an historical gemstone used for thousands of years.


If you love diamonds, but not the associated cost, white (clear) zircons are an excellent alternative to diamonds

These stones possess a similar dispersion to diamonds— Zircon’s pronounced double refraction means you can see twice as many facets which gives you even more sparkle. White zircon is an affordable way to add the timeless appeal of diamonds to any look.


It has Charm...

In the Middle Ages, this gem was thought to induce sound sleep, drive away evil spirits, and promote riches, honor, and wisdom.


Zircon is not the same as cubic zirconia.

Natural zircon is rare and more expensive than cubic zirconia (CZ). The most important difference to understand is that Zircon is a naturally occurring mineral, and CZ (even though it has been found in nature before) is a lab-created gemstone and is, therefore, not natural and not considered a mineral.


Zircon is found throughout our store, in many colors, mostly in the Al'Oro Collection.
