A Long History
If you were born in the month of December, you have the luck of two birthstones! For those of you considered an “old soul,” Zircon is the stone for you. It is found in Australian deposits and are actually the oldest minerals on the face of the earth. Similarly, the Turquoise was among the first gems to be mined, and while many historic sites have been depleted some are still worked on to this day. While both of these gems are known for their brilliant blue color, the Zircon actually comes in a wide range of colors, and even sometimes in its most translucent state gets confused with the Diamond.
