Superman standing next to a zircon.[1]

A zircon was a type of precious stone. Its' resemblance to diamonds is noteworthy; as sometimes they can be confused, but they are no where near as valuable.

When a diamond called the Star of Persia was stolen from the County Museum of Art, it was replaced by a zircon, and so everyone was fooled into thinking that the Star of Persia wasn't stolen.[2]
