The original mold this spoon is cast from is possibly American-made as it has a slightly more folksy appearance with it's primitive design work on the handle. Hand cast in original molds using lead-free pewter, these plates are the ultimate for authentic dining in your period home or camp.The crystal structure of zircon is tetragonal crystal system.The natural color of zircon varies between colorless, yellow-golden, red, brown, blue, and green.Colorless specimens that show gem quality are a popular substitute for diamond and are also known as "Matura diamond".The name derives from the Persian zargun meaning gold-hued.
