What does black zirconium feel like?

If you touch a piece of black zirconium, its surface gives you the feeling of ceramic. It has been recently adopted in the jewel making industry as inlays because of its following excellent qualities. First, it is very lightweight. Second, it is highly resistant to chemical corrosions, which relieve customers of such worries as corrosions caused by chemicals which they contact while watching hands or dishes or under other circumstances when they could not avoid touching chemicals. In addition to these excellent qualities, zirconium can bring out the features of the other materials that are used together in crafting a piece of jewelry.
