Unfortunately, cubic zirconia can’t offer us any mysterious legends or thrilling myths.  It’s because of its recent discovery or to be exact – invention.  The gem firstly appeared in the Soviet Union, 1960.

Several Soviet Union scientists of the Academy of Sciences managed to synthesize an amazing substance, later called “fianite” (Russian transcription), that is known to us under the name – Cubic zirconia.  The given mineral boasts a slew of wonderful properties, making it one of the most expensive gemstones in the jewelry market.

Cubic zirconia is strong and beautiful enough to take on diamond.  Apart from the jewelry industry, the gemstone is actively used in optics and in a variety of industries.  It has proved to be a successful invention, hasn’t it?

The name of the stone, though very poetic, does not carry any magical features. The mineral was named in honor of the institution in which it was synthesized, and more specifically – in honor of its abbreviation “FIAN”. As you see that’s a simple and ingenious story of the stone, which to some extent executes magical duties, just like any other gemstone used in jewelry.

Indeed, despite the artificial origin of the popular crystal, astrologers have identified a number of characteristics that can be called magical. People, wearing jewelry with stone, agree with this statement.

By composition, this artificial mineral is zirconium dioxide.  By the way, after this crystal was created artificially in the laboratory, a natural analogue dubbed tazheranite was found.  In was named in honor of the field, where it was found on the shore of Lake Baikal in Tazheranskaya steppe.  The bed is pretty poor, and new deposits haven’t been found yet.  However, that’s not a problem as the stone can be produced artificially without any cost and without disturbing nature.

The natural analogue shares the same properties with the original, except the magical ones.  It’s clear that the natural stone is stronger in terms of magic and we’ll talk about it later.

It’s advantageous to manufacture crystals of cubic zirconia artificially, as you can give it any color you like.  For instance, inclusions of chromium give the green color, titanium stands for golden brown, while copper makes it yellow.  You can even make it pink, purple or black.

Cubic zirconia features an incredible amount of different shades. So, it can emulate any gemstone by color.  That’s very important for the jewelry industry as not everyone can afford purchasing expensive natural stones, such as ruby, emerald, sapphire, to say nothing of diamond.

Certain additives can change the gem’s original properties and even its chemical formula.  Nevertheless, the given move won’t spoil the original mineral – on the contrary it will even become more versatile and change for the better.

Cubic zirconia can please its owner under any circumstances – that’s probably its major property.  However, this ability has nothing to do with magic, because its magic qualities are completely different. That’s about its amazing similarity of diamond and the ability to emulate any precious mineral, so that even in the laboratory it is difficult to distinguish.
