Well, it forms like every other mineral. Chemical bonding of atoms, subjected to heat and pressure and even chemical reactions. Is there something specific you are seeking? If you type zircon into your browser, you can bring up this site's summary. Do you mean like tetragonal or pyramidal for as far as crystalline formation?
