Comment(s).

¹. “It's high refractive index and the strong colour dispersion endow it with an adamantine lustre and sparkling lively fire; all which make zircon the close neighbour of diamonds” (Eduard Gűbelin and Franz-Xaver Erni, ‘Gemstones, Symbols of Beauty and Power’, 1999). “The name zircon is said to have been derived from the word ‘zargon’, which in Arabic means ‘vermillion’ and in Persian ‘gold-coloured’. Hitherto, zircons have been variously known as ‘jargoon’ or ‘cerkonier’; the first name is said to have been derived from the Italian word ‘gaicone’, which is probably a corruption of ‘zargoon’. The sources of zircon are worldwide, the mineral being a common accessory constituent of igneous rock, but the gem quality zircons are found in more localised areas. Zircon is prolific in the gem gravels of Sri Lanka and the mineral is found in gem quality in the Mogok stone track of a Burma. The most important localities for gem quality zircon are those of Vietnam, the mining areas of which in some cases pass into the neighbouring territory of Thailand – the mines in Kha, Champasak and Palin district” (Robert Webster, ‘Gems. Their Sources, Descriptions and Identification’, fifth edition, 1994).
