MINERALOGY: The zircon is formed as molten magma from acids magmas and therefore part of the mixture of granites and syenites. It appears as a double-pointed crystals in pegmatites, sediments are altered grains and transported by erosion. Zircon occurs in pleasures (alluvial material, eluvial and colluvial containing amounts of economic interest of a valuable mineral). with rounded forms, the content of radioactive elements (uranium, thorium) produces variations in many of its properties, zircons are known as cat eye effect.
