What Is Moissanite?
Moissanite is a gemstone made of naturally occurring silicon carbide originally discovered in 1893 in a meteor crater, making it literally a space rock. It was later also discovered in Wyoming, in the Green River Formation. Today, Moissanite for jewelry is exclusively lab-grown. A classic Moissanite gem looks a lot like a diamond, has a faint yellow tinge, and an incredible brilliance. Like a diamond, Moissanite rings are both clear and sparkly. Moissanite is a unique gemstone, and just like a diamond, it’s also very rare in nature. Both stones are available in a variety of shapes, making both a wise choice for an engagement or wedding ring.
