  • Ultra Light
    Currently, zircons are typically dated by uranium-lead (U-Pb), fission-track, cathodoluminescence, and U+Th/He techniques.
  • Ultra Light Italic
    Zirconium is a chemical element with symbol Zr and atomic number 40.
  • Thin
    The English word “zircon” is derived from “Zirkon”, which is the German adaptation of this word.
  • Thin Italic
    As short and stubby crystals, as well as prismatic which are sometimes elongated.
  • Light
    The name zircon is taken from the name of the mineral zircon, the most important source of zirconium.
  • Light Italic
    Australia leads the world in zircon mining, producing 37% of the world total and accounting for 40% of world EDR for the mineral.
  • 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
    In crystal growth, combinations of light intensity, light color, electric current, sound, the direction of these, plus the shape and size (frequency pattern) of the container or room, will all affect the final characteristics and energy potentials of a desired stone.
  • Regular
    The green coloring in many rounded pebbles usually indicates the Zircon is radioactive variety.
  • Regular Italic
    Silicon and oxygen constitute approximately 75% of the Earth’s crust, which translates directly into the predominance of silicate minerals.
  • Medium
    Zircons from Jack Hills in the Narryer Gneiss Terrane, Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia, have yielded U-Pb ages up to 4.404 billion years
  • Medium Italic
    The name derives from the Persian zargun meaning gold-hued; this word is corrupted into “jargoon”, a term applied to light-colored zircons.
  • Bold
    Zircon is mainly consumed as an opacifier, and has been known to be used in the decorative ceramics industry.
  • Bold Italic
    Minerals are classified by key chemical constituents; the two dominant systems are the Dana classification and the Strunz classification.
  • Black
    Connected to internal radiation damage, these processes partially disrupt the crystal structure and partly explain the highly variable properties of zircon.
  • Black Italic
    Zirconium is a mineral belonging to the group of nesosilicates.
