All our Natural zircon comes directly from the Borkeo
mines in Ratanakiri Province,
Ratanakiri literally means Gemstone
Borkeo is known to be the best place for mining the most beautiful natural blue
zircons on earth, although Blue zircon is mined in several other countries no
other places on earth match the Borkeo stones, they are well known and admired
for their deep blue color and shine.
Natural zircon sadly suffers from confusion with cubic zirconia, an artificial
manufactured imitation of diamond. Many people are unaware that there is a
genuine and natural beautiful gemstone called zircon and therefore confused
with the cheap imitation.
Zircon is available in many colors but the bluest color is the most popular. Previously,
the colorless zircons were most popular because they look like diamond but the
market was taken over by the cheap factory-made cubic zirconia when it came on
Zircon is one of the heaviest stones that exist. Its SG "specific
gravity" which is its atomic density is 4.60-4.70 compared to diamond
which is 3.52 and sapphire which is 4.00. This means that a 1 ct. zircon looks
substantially less than 1 ct. diamond as its atomic density is larger and
heavier. All gemstones are measured by weight. 1 ct. = 0.2 grams.
The hardness of zircon is 7.5 on the Mohs scale.
Its many color options, its rarity and relative unjust low price make zircon
very popular for those who know that a zircon gemstone is, and that they have
nothing to do with the artificial cubic zirconia.
Since natural zircon has been a little known and often misunderstood stone,
they can be expected to increase significantly in value in the near future, so now
is a good time to buy natural zircon as jewelry, or investment stones.
Natural blue zircon is known as the birth stone for people born in December, a
good Christmas gift, birthday gift or something blue for a bride.
