Zircon has been prized throughout the centuries for its strength and beauty. It makes an appearance in ancient Hindu poems about the Kalpa Tree, the ultimate gift to the gods. This glowing tree was said to be covered with gemstone fruit and leaves of zircon.  In the middle ages, zircon was said to aid sleep, bring prosperity, and promote wisdom. In modern folklore, it is believed that zircon helps relieve pain, prevent nightmares, and promotes peaceful thoughts.
