ZIRCON CRYSTALS SPECIMENS
Zircon might be the oldest mineral on the planet, with some crystals dated at 4.4 billion years old (a mere 100 million years after the birth of the earth). Most often, zircon appears as a dark, rusty brown, with a tint between red and orange. Despite its abundance within the earth’s crust, larger, gemmy zircon crystals are scarce, and are therefore highly sought after by collectors. Zircon has been used as a gemstone for over 2000 years, with colorless, faceted crystals being a popular substitute for diamonds.
