What kind of stone is moissanite?

It looks like a diamond, but
Moissanite is a single gem name called "Moissanite".
Let's unravel what kind of stone this stone is.


The origin of moissanite is the universe

It goes back to the mineral that was originally discovered in the meteorites that fell from space. It is a new mineral calculated from meteorites, which is rarely produced naturally on the earth. A new mineral consisting of a substance called "silicon carbide", which was named after the researcher's name was Henri Moissan. That is moissanite. Eventually, the beauty of its extraordinary brilliance led to its high value as a gemstone, which was "artificially" produced by Charles & Colvard. The origin is a new mineral from space, but now it is a new gem produced from a substance called "silicon carbide".


Features of moissanite

Moissanite Its brilliance is about 2.5 times more than diamond, and it is extremely excellent in many aspects such as color, transparency, durability, and price.

The only thing that diamonds outperform is their hardness (diamond's Mohs hardness is 10), but moissanite also boasts a Mohs hardness of 9.25 or higher, which is almost the same as diamonds.

The price of moissanite is 1/5 to 1/50 or less compared to diamonds, and one of the attractions is that it is affordable and easy to wear for everyday use.

In the last few years, it has become explosively popular in the United States and other countries from fast fashion to bridal, and as jewelry of higher quality than diamonds, in 2022 it will inevitably become a trend.

Jewelry that is gaining absolute popularity from a wide range of people.

It is truly a "next generation jewel".
