What is Moissanite?

What is Moissanite?

Diamond Simulants are a genuine lab-grown alternative to mined diamonds and do not share the same chemical structure, nor are they synthetic diamonds made from a carbon base.

Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so moissanite available today is laboratory-created. After many years of trial and error, the particles French scientist named Henri Moissan discovered in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth were successfully synthesized to produce what is now one of the world’s most scintillating gemstones.

Moissanite, referred to as a diamond simulant, is engineered to give the illusion of similarity to diamonds, but is compositionally and visually quite different from a real diamond. The durability, brilliance, and color of the two gems are quite distinct.
