What is Moissanite?
Moissanite is a near-colorless gemstone that’s composed of silicon carbide. First discovered in 1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan, who later won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, moissanite was originally found in the crater left behind by a fallen meteor.
Although they look similar at first glance, moissanite is very different from a diamond. Diamonds are made of carbon, whereas moissanites are made of pure silicon carbide — an extremely rare, naturally-occurring mineral.
The natural moissanite discovered by Moissan in 1893 is exceptionally rare, making it practically impossible to use natural moissanite for jewelry. Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so moissanite available today is laboratory-created.
An affordable, durable, and eco-conscious alternative to a mined diamond
Because they are grown in controlled environments using advanced technology, moissanites require absolutely no mining to produce. Compared with natural gemstones, Moissanites have a smaller carbon footprint and result in less environmental impact. Fine jewelry made with moissanites is a responsible choice.
Moissanite gemstones are colorless (graded D, E, or F), of high clarity (VS1 or better), and are manufactured to an Excellent Cut. Moissanite is less susceptible to cracking and chipping than a diamond as it has greater tensile strength and is less brittle than diamond.
Selecting a Moissanite
A diamond’s price and value is dependent on its 4 C’s (Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat). These elements work together to form the beauty and brilliance of the stone.
The cut and clarity grade is similar across different qualities of moissanites. Moissanite is also available in colors equivalent to “Near Colorless” G to I range and “Colorless” D through F range.
