Cushion Cut

Pyramid Shapes

Zircon is brilliant. It flashes multiple colors of light called fire. Its sparkle and flashes are diamond-like, so for centuries, there was a lot of confusion between the two gems. Zircon comes in blue, green, and autumn colors such as cinnamon, sherry, yellow, orange, and red. There are also colorless zircons and cat’s-eye zircons.
Colors
You can find many colors of zircon—blue, green, brown, yellow, orange, and red. The colorless zircon is one of the most brilliant non-diamond gems!

what's in a name?
