Zircon is a mineral belonging to the group of nesosilicates. Its chemical formula is ZrSiO4. Hafnium is almost always present ranging from 1 to 4%. The crystal structure of zircon is tetragonal crystal class. The natural color of zircon varies between colorless, yellow-golden, red, brown or green. Specimens that show gem quality are a popular substitute for diamond (but note that cubic zirconia is a completely different synthetic mineral with a different chemical composition). Zircon is a...
