Item Description

Today the most popular color is blue zircon, which is also an alternative birthstone for December. Most of these “blues” are pastel, but they can be a bright sky blue like this large, brilliant pear cut gem. This collector-sized stone would make a most dramatic piece of jewelry — like having a museum-sized blue diamond that collectors can actually afford! Zircon is a very high refractive index (near that of diamond) with strong dispersion— the property of splitting white light into the colors of the spectrum. This makes zircons very brilliant gems with impressive “fire” and a favorite among collectors and informed consumers alike. Standard heat only. (H)
