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.

For further information on man-made crystals, see this article: Treated, Heated and Man-Made Crystals.

Some say the stone doesn't have any metaphysical properties, while others say that the colors it can be created in lend to some metaphysical properties (read more about Crystals and Color), such as happiness, confidence, love, growth, vitality, connection to the Divine, mental boosting.
