Zircon is the oldest mineral on earth and appears in an array of colors such as yellow, red, brown, peach and blue. Known for its brilliance and strong “fire” or multi-colored flashes of light, it is sure to catch people’s attention in any piece of jewelry. Light to colorless toned Zircons make a good choice for someone wanting a very sparkly neutral colored gemstone for a fraction of the price of a diamond.
Zircon is an alternative birthstone for the month of December.
Gems from the heart
Moyo means 'heart' in Kiswahili. When you purchase a Moyo gem, you’re helping women artisanal gem miners (and their male allies!) in Tanzania and Kenya. We work to empower miners to work safely, improve financial security, and create stable, equitable markets for fair trade. A Moyo gem gives back a higher percentage of the sale than an ANZA gem, and this amount is re-invested into the Moyo Gems program to help run market days and support local community needs.
