Zircons are commercially mined for the metal zirconium, and are used for abrasive and insulating purposes.
It is the source of zirconium oxide (ZrO2), one of the most refractory materials known.
Large specimens are appreciated as gemstones, owing to their high refractive index. (Zircon has a refractive index of approximately 1.95; diamond's is approximately 2.4.)
Zircon is one of the key minerals used by geologists for geochronology .
Zircon is a part of the ZTR index to classify highly-weathered sediments
