Keshett Birthstone Blogs   Blue Zircon

Zircon is an Australian treasure that goes back into the farthest reaches of history. With 37% of the strong and bright stone, Zircon coming from Australia, it is more rare than a diamond in its clearest form, and yet can still be purchased for much less. This surprise price range comes from the confusion that Zircon is somehow related to being Cubic Zirconia. This couldn’t be further from the truth- it has absolutely no relation whatsoever. Zircon has been used in antique and vintage jewellery for hundreds of years and is treasured for its strength and beautiful earthy colours. Blue Zircon is the most popular for its beautiful colour. 

Blue Zircon Meaning

Zircon represents dignity and purity, and protects the wearer negative energy and promotes healing

 

Turquoise

Turquoise has been a popular and revered stone since ancient times, from the Egyptians to the Aztecs, and especially native American tribes. Turquoise has had quite the resurgence in popularity among today’s jewellery collectors. From it’s rich blue green hues to the white turquoise with dark accents, Turquoise makes beautiful jewellery in all types of designs and it is being worn across the globe in stunning arrays of jewellery. The United States supplies most of the world’s turquoise, from its mines in Arizona, Nevada, California and New Mexico. The soil surrounding turquoise is rich in copper and water, where these combine with aluminium and phosphorus. Copper creates the gorgeous blues and iron contributes the hints of green. 

Turquoise Meaning

Turquoise is rooted in deep cultural significance and carries with it great protection. It attracts happiness, health, and harmony.  It represents fortune and success, and brings mental wellbeing, while protecting from negativity.
