Zircon is a nesosilicate mineral, known for its exceptional hardness and durability. It is a very dense mineral with a specific gravity ranging from 3.90 to 4.73 g/cm3, meaning that it's notably heavier than quartz at 2.65 g/cm3, and even slightly heavier than diamond 3.52 g/cm3. Zircon's high refractive index and dispersion give it a brilliance comparable to diamond, making it a sought-after gemstone in various colors.

Zircon is the birthstone for December.

Bead Count

Count of beads on a strand:

  • 1x2mm= 360 Beads
  • 2x3mm = 180 Beads
  • 3x4mm = 120 Beads
Note: These are general guidelines. The actually count may be greater or slightly less than stated.
Hole Size

Bead hole size: 0.3mm - 0.5mm

Note: These are general guidelines. The actually hole size may be slightly larger or smaller than stated.

For beads 4mm and smaller, it is recommended to start with stringing wires no larger than .013inch / .33mm. This will ensure a proper fit and in most cases allow for feeding of the wire tip back through the beads for a clean finish.

Elastic cords can be used with beads 4mm and larger, but it will not fit through most beads smaller than 4mm. It's recommended to use 0.5mm elastic cord.

These recommendations are intended to help guide you for a successful project. With time and experience you'll discover what works best for your designs.
