A stone before there was time

Around 4.5 billion years old, Zircon is the oldest known mineral on earth or the moon.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all gemstones. Unfortunately, due to the similarity of Zircon's name to the synthetic diamond cubic zirconia.

Many people don't realize that Zircon is a beautiful, naturally occurring stone with its own merits. 

Gemologist George Kunz - Tiffany’s famed gem buyer, was a notable Zircon advocate. He once proposed the name “starlite” to promote the gem’s fiery nature. The name never caught on.

These featured items are original one-of-a-kind, handmade designs that Flint Carpenter and Jose Salgado have created in our Kailua-Kona store front. They are being offered to our Preferred Client Club at a value price for the month of December.

The Lore of Zircon

Zircon has been known under various names since antiquity. The current name for Zircon most likely comes from the Persian word zargun meaning "golden colored”.

In the Middle Ages, this gem was thought to induce sound sleep, drive away evil spirits, and promote riches, honor, and wisdom.
