Zircon is the oldest mineral on earth being 4.4 billion years old.
Colourless zircon is well known for its brilliance and flashes of multi-coloured light, called fire. These two zircon properties are close enough to the properties of diamond to account for centuries of confusion between the two gems.
In the Middle Ages, this gem was thought to induce sound sleep, drive away evil spirits and promote riches, honour and wisdom.
Many scholars think the stone’s name comes from the Persian word zargun, or “gold coloured.''
Zircon is also the birthstone of December.
