Item Description

Zircons are found in virtually all colors, but the blue Cambodian Zircons are some of the most valuable and well-known examples in the world. If you go back a couple decades, there was a fair number of these stones on the market, but they seemingly have dried up in recent years. Keep in mind that this is NATURAL ZIRCON, not synthetic zirconia. Some inexperienced buyers will shy away from Zircon because they fear it might be synthetic material, but the Cambodian gems are completely natural, though often heated to produce a more pleasing color. This stone has an "Oval Step" cut with a glowing sea blue color and nearly eye-clean clarity. A very good sized stone (well over 3 carats) that would make for a great center stone in a piece of jewelry, or as an addition to your gem collection. Priced at $547.75 retail.

From the old inventory of Ray Zajicek, a respected wholesaler and founding member of AGTA and the International Colored Gemstone Association, with decades of experience in the gem and jewelry business.  Ray has won more than a dozen Spectrum & Cutting Edge Awards (TM).
