What is Moissanite?

Moissanite is a naturally occurring silicon carbide and its various crystalline polymorphs, discovered by the French Nobel Prize-winning chemist Henri Moissan in 1893 and was named "Moissanite" in his honor. It has the closest physical properties to natural diamonds, similar in appearance and hardness, but with double brilliance, rainbow-like light reflection, and a lower price.

Moissanite is the second hardest gemstone on Earth (after Diamond), making it durable, scratch-resistant, and ideal for daily wear. Most of all, Moissanite is lab-created, which requires no mining resulting in its conflict-free and eco-friendly features that humanists and environmentalists are concerned about.
