Additional Info

Zircon is a naturally occurring gemstone that comes in a wide range of colors. It probably got its name from the Persian word "zargun", which means "golden colored." Zircon is not to be confused with diamond simulant Cubic Zirconia.

Where to buy?
For Zircon check what Amazon has to offer. You'll usually find quite a selection from many different vendors. Worth a check. For other high quality gemstones (Rubies, Saphhires, Emeralds) and especially Diamonds, I highly recommend JamesAllen.
