The origins of spectral feature of stellar source are identified on the basis of laboratory studies. Although ZrC grains were identified as the crystalline presolar grains in meteorites, the spectral data of ZrC grains have not been measured in the laboratory. Therefore, ZrC grains with the same size as the presolar grains were produced in the laboratory. It has been found that the infrared spectrum of ZrC grains shows broad absorption features at 9.4 and 12.4 μm.
