Gems: Zircon

Do you want your wedding band or engagement ring to be more sparkling and be different? Have them set with the birthstone for December, the zircon.

Zircon is a colorless stone used to imitate diamonds but also comes in blue, yellow, orange, red, brown and green. It is somewhat soft so extra care should be employed to avoid it from being scratched. Zircon is believed to bring wisdom, honor and wealth to its owner. This gem is also believed to keep evil spirits and bad dreams away, protect against "fascination" and lightning, strengthen their bodies and banish grief and sadness from the mind. Women are also said to use it to assist them during childbirth.
