  • Ultra Light
    Zircon is ubiquitous in the crust of Earth and it occurs as a common accessory mineral in igneous rocks, in metamorphic rocks and as detrital grains in sedimentary rocks.
  • Ultra Light Italic
    Scientists then studied the diamonds’ composition, looking specifically at their carbon isotopes.
  • Thin
    Minerals are distinguished by various chemical and physical properties. Differences in chemical composition and crystal structure distinguish the various species, which were determined by the mineral’s geological environment when formed.
  • Thin Italic
    The abundance and diversity of minerals is controlled directly by their chemistry, in turn dependent on elemental abundances in the Earth.
  • Light
    Zircon is mainly consumed as an opacifier, and has been known to be used in the decorative ceramics industry.
  • Light Italic
    Recent experiments, for example, have shown that crystals grow five times faster when their supersaturated solution is subjected to frequencies of 10 to 100 cycles a second.
  • Book
    Minerals are distinguished by various chemical and physical properties. Differences in chemical composition and crystal structure distinguish the various species, which were determined by the mineral’s geological environment when formed.
  • Book Italic
    Minerals can be described by their various physical properties, which are related to their chemical structure and composition.
  • Regular
    The name derives from the Persian zargun meaning gold-hued; this word is corrupted into “jargoon”, a term applied to light-colored zircons.
  • Regular Italic
    On the Isle of Skye near Ireland, is a chapel dedicated to St. Columbus, and on the altar is a round crystalline blue stone held sacred to weather and health.
  • Medium
    Currently, zircons are typically dated by uranium-lead (U-Pb), fission-track, cathodoluminescence, and U+Th/He techniques.
  • Medium Italic
    Minerals are distinguished by various chemical and physical properties. Differences in chemical composition and crystal structure distinguish the various species, which were determined by the mineral’s geological environment when formed.
  • Bold
    The name derives from the Persian zargun meaning gold-hued; this word is corrupted into “jargoon”, a term applied to light-colored zircons.
  • Bold Italic
    Radioactive dating shows that the zircon crystals were formed more than 4 billion years ago.
  • Black
    Mineral classification schemes and their definitions are evolving to match recent advances in mineral science.
  • Black Italic
    New York University chemists have created three-dimensional DNA structures, a breakthrough bridging the molecular world to the world where we live.
