I've noticed that all common's have 1 extra stat, but the commons that are named Zircon have 4 stats.. Like Zircon chain mail boots (common) +5 to Fire, Cold, Poison and Lighting. Seen also a Zircon Plate item also with 4 stats which was +4 to same as above.

So i'm thinking this might be a bug.

Zircon would follow the trend of naming an elemental resist item after its resistance. I haven't got the descriptors in front of me, but for instance a fire resist item might be called 'ruby something or other'. Well, zircon (or diamond-wannabe) would describe something that resists all elements. Pretty common usage actually in my experience.

The higher powered items with that bonus would be 'diamond' I assume, though I don't remember actually seeing one of those. A real zircon is a type of fake diamond, its short for cubic zirconium. It looks sort of like a diamond, but not nearly as nice, or as expensive.

That clear it up for you? :)
