  • Ultra Light
    As short and stubby crystals, as well as prismatic which are sometimes elongated.
  • Ultra Light Italic
    Zircon often contains traces of radioactive elements in its structure, which causes it to be metamict.
  • Thin
    Zircon is mainly consumed as an opacifier, and has been known to be used in the decorative ceramics industry.
  • Thin Italic
    Mineral classification schemes and their definitions are evolving to match recent advances in mineral science.
  • Light
    Some rocks, such as limestone or quartzite, are composed primarily of one mineral—calcite or aragonite in the case of limestone, and quartz in the latter case.
  • Light Italic
    Zirconium is a mineral belonging to the group of nesosilicates.
  • Book
    An interesting habit occasionally exhibited in Zircon from a few localities is that their color darkens and their luster dulls upon prolonged exposure to sunlight.
  • Book Italic
    Zircon is a common accessory to trace mineral constituent of most granite and felsic igneous rocks.
  • Regular
    New York University chemists have created three-dimensional DNA structures, a breakthrough bridging the molecular world to the world where we live.
  • Regular Italic
    The English word “zircon” is derived from “Zirkon”, which is the German adaptation of this word.
  • Medium
    The name zircon is taken from the name of the mineral zircon, the most important source of zirconium.
  • Medium Italic
    Connected to internal radiation damage, these processes partially disrupt the crystal structure and partly explain the highly variable properties of zircon.
  • Bold
    Yellow, orange and red zircon is also known as “hyacinth”, from the flower hyacinthus, whose name is of Ancient Greek origin.
  • Bold Italic
    An interesting habit occasionally exhibited in Zircon from a few localities is that their color darkens and their luster dulls upon prolonged exposure to sunlight.
  • Black
    Commercially valuable minerals and rocks are referred to as industrial minerals.
  • Black Italic
    Minerals can be described by their various physical properties, which are related to their chemical structure and composition.
