Cubic Zirconia

Cubic Zirconia is a cubic translucent form of zirconium oxide (ZrO2). It is the man-made synthetic counterpart to diamonds that has become widely popular because of its lower cost. It is often confused with Zircon; however, Zircon is a zirconium silicate (ZrSiO4).

Lab created Cubic Zirconia is clear when formed, but the addition of trace elements such as cobalt, titanium, cerium and chromium can produce colors such as red, green, yellow, orange and even purple. It is also not as hard as a diamond, rating an 8-8.5 on the Mohs scale, as opposed to a diamond, which is a 10 on the Mohs scale.
