Can you believe it's already December and it's our last birthstone blog of 2015!? We'll take that silence as sadness. This month's birthstone is beautiful blue zircon. The word zircon comes from the Arabic words zar and gun which mean gold and color. The most popular zircon are the vivid blues, even though zircon is available in tones of green, dark red, yellow, brown, and orange. In the middle ages zircon was said to bring prosperity, promote wisdom, and aid in resting to its owner (should we sign you up for 1 or 2 birthstone bracelets?). For years, colorless zircon was also used to imitate diamonds. This beautiful gem can be mostly found in Thailand, Cambodia, and southern part of Vietnam.
