Zircon derives its name from the Persian word “Zargun” which means gold-colored but Zircon comes in a wide range of attractive colors and also the colorless variety which due its brilliance and dispersion, looks like Diamond. Widely used in Sri Lanka for the past 2000 years and sought after by Arab Traders who gave its name “ Zargun”. Zircon being a semi-precious variety is available in a range of colors and its comparative low prices, appeals to jewelers worldwide. Natural Zircon today suffers due to similarity of its name to Cubic Zirconia which is a synthetic substitute manufactured in a large scale.
