Cubic Zirconia (known commonly as CZ) is a hard, optically flawless, diamond simulation. While it is extremely rare in nature, it is widely synthesized for use as an artificial diamond. In the beading industry, CZs are cut in many different shapes and colors. They can be used as a cost effective replacement for high end gemstones. A crystal clear strand of London blue topaz may not be in your future, but a crystal clear strand of CZs in a similar color might be just the ticket for creating a design that is more in your price bracket. They add sparkle and color to any and all designs.
Due to variances in dye lots, colors may vary slightly from strand to strand. Please order enough strands to meet your needs for a specific project. We will do our very best to send you strands that match closely in color. If you need to reorder later, the color may be slightly different.
These CZs may be man made, however the color is important to Gemstone healing. Garnet (Red) represents the Root Chakra which is positioned at the base of the spine. Garnet helps with emotional balance and protection. Garnet is the January/Aquarius Birthstone.
