Zirconia (ZrO2)

Zirconia (also known as zirconium oxide). The strongest and toughest of all advanced ceramic materials, it is used to make scissors and knives which products once considered impossible to make from ceramic. Single-crystal zirconia is also prized as a jewel, as its refractive index creates a diamond-like-brightness.
