Zircon is a natural gemstone material that has been known since the Middle Ages. The oldest known zircon stones are around 4.4 billion years old. The name "zircon" probably comes from the Persian word "zargun" meaning "gold-colored", though zircon comes in a wide range of different colors as well as the most popular zircon color of blue. Most blue zircon come in a pastel blue, but some exceptional gems have a bright blue color. Zircon is also available colorless, green, dark-red, pink, violet, yellow, brown and orange.
Zircon has great brilliance and intense fire because of its high refractive index and strong dispersion. This means that zircon gems sparkle and make stunning jewelry gemstones. Colorless zircon stones are generally brilliant-cut and have fraudulently been sold as "matura" diamond. On the other hand, natural zircon should not be confused with synthetic cubic zirconia, a common diamond look-alike. Some of the best zircon gems come from Cambodia and have a unique teal-like blue color that is prized by jewelry lovers all over the world.
Although relatively hard, (rating 6.5-7.5 on the Mohs scale), zircon is brittle and therefore sensitive to knocks and pressure. The gem has the tendency to wear along facet edges. Its use in rings should therefore be limited to protective settings or occasional-wear jewelry. Zircon jewelry should be stored carefully and wrapped separately.

Gemstones are accurately portrayed and comes with a gemologist confirmation of authenticity (not appraisal) but still helps when I set in my settings to make and sell rings.
I would recommend gem select. They care about all details from description to quality to packaging to shipping. I specialize in turquoise so I would like more explicit provenance than "American"... Couldn't they give me mine or at least state? Never the less very classy. Also, their turquoise cabochons are very thick for good and bad. I cut many in half to make them more versatile and commercially useful. If one can't do that then you are going to have to settle for wire wrapped jewelry. I think that overall thy are a great resource.
I am looking forward to my purchased opal to be set in a ring and a necklace for my sister for her birthday present I am interested I working with this company in the future if we are happy with our opals thanks so much for your communication
