Description: A stunning 4.95ct Dusty Pink Oval Cut Zircon from Mozambique. Received as a rough, we crafted it into an oval cut with the dimensions of 10.31 x 8.46 x 5.77 mm.
"Zircon is actually the oldest known mineral on Earth; the oldest samples are even older than the moon, which formed 4 billion years ago" (gemselect.com).
Zircon comes in a wide variety of colors. "Its varied palette of yellow, green, red, reddish brown, and blue hues makes it a favorite among collectors as well as informed consumers." It is also "known for its brilliance and flashes of multicolored light, called fire" (gia.edu) in its colorless form.
