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.
