About Moissanite

  What is Moissanite

Moissanite was first discoverd in 1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan, who later won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He discovered the microscopic particles of the gem in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth and later the gem eventually bear his name in Arizona. Research shows the gem is composed of silicon carbide, which is more brilliant than the other gemstones. Natural moissanite is incredibly rare,it is limited for jewelry purposes, moissanite available today is lavoratory-created.

Moissanite is not Artificial Diamond

With unique characteristic, moissanite is different from diamond. Their chemical components are different, although they look similar from appearance. The nature diamond is C and moissanite is SiC. Moissanite is not artificial diamond. Synthetic diamond can be produced in large quantity but moissanite cannot. That is why moissanite is valueble than synthetic diamond.

With the Same Carat, Moissanite is Bigger than Diamond by 10%

Because moissanite is lighter than diamond with the same size, we prefer to sell moissanite by sizes but not by carats. A piece of 0.9 carat 6.5mm moissanite completely applies to jewelry which matches 1.0 carat diamond. You will find that moissanite is bigger 10% than what you expected if you buy moissanite according to carat.
