Comments : Big Harts Range zircons are a very rare gemstone. These natural zircons are found in a very small area in the central part of Australia, a remote region called the Harts Ranges. The actual fossicking area is called "The Mudtank" because as soon as it gets a spot of rain on it it all turns to mud in a flash and you don't want to get caught there in your vehicle. Finding a large clean zircon like this requires moving ALOT of dirt and many hours of back breaking labour digging in the hard dirt and putting it all through the sieve. This beauty is a chocolate-mocha-tobacco colour, very rich and beautiful. A fine and rare natural Australian gemstone.

Butterscotch Zircon, Majestic Kalli, Africa, #735
Zoom

Stone : Butterscotch Zircon
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2014
Item : #735
Design : Majestic Kalli
Origin : Africa
Treatments : None
Weight : 11.4 Carats
Clarity : Very Very Slightly Included
Size : 10.5x10.5x11.4mm
Price : PRICE ON REQUEST - This stunning zircon is currently with the very talented jewellery designer and metalsmith, Gerard Wollaston. He is creating something special with this gem so feel free to get in touch with him if you would like to know more.

Comments : Here is a rare and beautiful butterscotch zircon from Africa. These natural zircons are becoming very scarce and hard to find in this colour... it is a rich caramel butterscotch, very appealing and quite unique, and much better in person then the pics suggest. I have cut this zircon in a combination of the Kalli and Majestic designs to create a gem that is truly one-of-a-kind. This beauty has over 200 facets and displays a full rainbow of fireworks and dispersion.

At night... WOW! Under lights this gem is just on fire! The first time I looked at it at night was in a darkened room with just a single incandescent bulb shining over my shoulder and illuminating the gem... and it took my breath away. The colour and dazzling display of fireworks was totally mesmerizing, it really was, and is, a thing of beauty. This gem would suit a collector of rare and fine gemstones or an imaginative jewellery designer. There is just a very small veil in the crown but otherwise eye clean.

Design : Deep Cushion
Origin : Cambodia
Treatments : Unknown
Weight : 42.68 Carat
Clarity : Very Very Slightly Included

Price : Available from KING STONE GEMS

Comments : WOW! This is an absolute monster of a blue zircon, they certainly don't get much bigger then this! This beauty is a strikingly vivid blue colour and is really something to behold. As you can see in the picture, this blue zircon exhibits what is know as "birefringence". This is where you see a kind of doubling-up inside the stone. This is a property that is common to zircon and a number of other stones. This is definitely one for the collector as it really is a rare gem in this size. It is an exceptional specimen of it's type.

Price : SOLD

Comments : This zircon was found in the remote Harts Ranges situated in Central Australia... a very hard, hot but incredibly beautiful place. The actual area these zircons are found is called 'The Mud-Tank', a spot well known among Australia fossickers as producing exceptional zircons. The zircons from this location are some of the finest you will find and come in a range of colours. This particular stone was found by a customer and they requested that I cut it in a nice teardrop design. There was also a smaller round brilliant that I cut from the same stone... it was from an offcut when I was trimming the original stone.
