Please do not confuse this stunning blue, natural gemstone with cubic zirconia. They are worlds apart. Blue Zircon is a natural gemstone and it is a favorite of avid gemstone collectors. Zircons actually come in various colors but blue by far is its most popular shade. The zircon has yet to reach its full market potential because of the public's unfamiliarity with the gemstone...but this will change very soon.
After all, it took Tanzanites, which was discovered in 1968, almost 40 years to gain nation-wide recognition and rise above in its rank as one of the most popular gemstones. Blue Zircon, with its strikingly beautiful sky-blue color, brilliance, and clarity, has great potential as an investment piece. Blue Zircon is also a December birthstone resembling the crisp winter blue sky.
