Earth's birthstone reveals our planets origins
Blue zircon has been around over 4 billion years
Scientists at The Australian National University (ANU) were able to paint a picture of Earth in its infancy by studying zircon mineral grains preserved in sandstone rocks in the Jack Hills of Western Australia dating to 4.4 billion years–– the oldest fragments of the Earth ever found. This means zircon has been cooking in the earth for at least five hundred million years longer than any diamond.
Not only does zircon surpass diamonds in life experience, zircon has no visible inclusions so it’s incredibly clear to the eye. And, blue zircon in particular is able to split light into the various colors of the spectrum— creating fire to rival any blue diamond.
The Men's Blue Zircon Timeless Ring showcases almost one carat of the world’s oldest stone in .925 sterling silver. Two blue topaz gems and white rounds accent the rings shoulders for extra shine. A striking way to remind yourself Mother Nature has been cook-ing up miracles for a very long time.
