Hyacinth, also known as Jacinth, is an alternative name used for red or orange zircon. It derives its name from the flower hyacinth, which can be found in similar colors. The name "Hyacinth" is less commonly used in modern gemstone terminology, and "Red Zircon" is generally the preferred term.
Fame has gemstones hyacinth is the zircon of red, crimson, dark pink, and orange-red flowers. Beautiful bright colors from this palette are very rare, and darker samples are usually subjected to heat treatment to lighten or change color to blue, yellow, or colorless. Hyacinth's high-quality jewelry weighing over 10 carats is considered unique. We are constantly monitoring the market in search of such samples. In recent times we find a very beautiful rose gold zircon from Madagascar.
