Jargon

Jargon, or Zircon, a rare mineral, in which Klaproth (1789) first indicated the presence of the element zirconium, the compound consisting of a silicate of that metal Zi Si 04. It forms crystals somewhat resembling diamonds but heavier; specific gravity 45, and not as hard. It is frequently coloured blue, green, or orange, the latter being the variety most prized as gems. Jargon is found in a number of localities, but Ceylon is the chief source of the mineral.

“Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies."”
John 11:25
