It occurs as a common accessory mineral in igneous rocks as primary crystallization products in metamorphic rocks and as detrital grains in sedimentary rocks. The gemstone has its ways to increase the quality of our lives. First it gives us protection against negativity just like stated earlier. Then, it brings us love and happiness.

Many scholars think the stone's name comes from the Arabic word zarkun, meaning cinnibar or vermillion. Others believe the source is the Persian word zargun, or gold coloured. Considering zircon's colour range, either derivation seems possible.
