Positivity | Prosperity | Purity | Honour | Hyacinth | Aaron's Breastplate
The zircon is a mineral formed by Zirconium silica which crystals are part of fine gems. It is sometimes a colorless crystal but that goes from golden to red hues with brown, green, blue and black hues too.
The zircon is a natural stone which can be used as an economical substitute to the diamond. For a long time, it was called "Matura diamond". However, do not confuse zircon with cubic zirconia (zirconium dioxide) that is an artificial stone. It is used to replace diamonds with a cheaper cost.
The zircon is also mentioned in an old Hindu poem about the mythical tree of Kalpa. This red tree was covered with precious stones and zircon leaves. It was the ultimate God’s gift.
According to some Jewish legends, an angel called Zircon would have guided Adam and Eve to the Eden garden.
The zircon is also mentioned several times in the Bible, under the old name of Hyacinth. It can be found as one of the fire stones gifted to Moses to be part of Aaron’s plastron (breastplate). It is also one of the stones used to found the Celestial Jerusalem.
In the Middle-Ages, it was thought that the zircon would give a deep sleep and would get rid of bad spirits, and that it would also bring richness, honor and wisdom.
Zircon is known to be great for prosperity, spiritual protection, purity, honor, positive energy, and happiness. It is also linked with all of the chakras and may combine the strengths by way of aligning them.
