BLUEBERRY ZIRCON

Zircon is the oldest mineral on earth, dating back 4.4 billion years. Its name comes from the Persian “Zargun”, which meaning golden color. Zircons can survive geological processes like erosion, transport, and even high-grade metamorphosis; as a result, they contain a rich and varied record of these processes, adding to their unique allure. There are many colors of Zircon including yellow, orange, brown, green, red and blue, the latter of which Le Vian® has chosen to introduce as Blueberry Zircon, its newest gemstone flavor.

Le Vian® Blueberry Zircon can only be found in Cambodia, is chosen from the top of production and displays a unique blue color with green tones, which sometimes causes it to be mistaken for a Paraiba Tourmaline. It is a very highly refractive gem with a hardness of 7.5 and a vitreous luster.

Blueberry Zircon has the unique characteristic of being double reflective which means you see twice as many facets and twice as much fire. Larger sizes of Blueberry Zircon are extremely rare, almost nonexistent, with only 5 or less pieces of 30 carats or more discovered in the last year. Le Vian® is popularizing this ancient and rare gem as a salute to its 2017 Color of the Year, Blues.

“Blueberry Zircon is cut to Le Vian’s exacting standards and displays a unique blue color. They have a very high dispersion of light and high refractive indices giving them very high brilliance.”

Soothing Gray SpinelTM

Spinel, the gem of royalty, has a centuries old history, its most famous sighting in the British Crown Jewels.

Spinel can be found in a variety of hues from bright candied apple red, rich and bold pink, and many shades of purple, blue, violet and bluish green.

Trace amounts of iron give spinel a violet to blue color and trace amounts of cobalt bring about vibrant blue.

Spinel, like garnet and diamond, is singly refractive, with the same physical properties in all crystal directions. It belongs to the cubic crystal system, and its characteristic crystal shape is an octahedron, looking like two back-to-back pyramids.

"Le Vian® celebrates the majestic gem with royal beginnings in the ultra-feminine Mixberry Spinel™ collection featuring a delicious rainbow of natural Spinel flavors."
