DECEMBER – ZIRCON
Zircon's popular color is blue and can be heat-treated to obtain colorless and gold zircon.
Many people confuse this spectacular gem with synthetic cubic zirconia because of
their analogous names and common use as diamond stimulants. However, zircon is
a natural crystal whose existence on earth dates back over 4.4 billion years. It derives
its name from Persian (modern Iran) term zargun that stands for “gold-colored.”
The December birthstone zircon symbolizes prosperity, wisdom, honor and
self-respect. It has healing powers to cure allergies and asthma, gallbladder and
liver complication as well as promote common sense.
