Blue zircon is the birthstone for December. Zircon is a brilliant yet affordable gemstone and its fire can rival that of a diamond. Zircon is commonly seen in a rich light to medium blue color but is also available in gold, white, orange, and green color. The majority of zircon is mined from Sri Lanka, Burma, Vietnam, and Thailand.
Zircon is a natural gemstone – not to be confused with the man made cubic zirconia, a diamond simulant.
