What is Moissanite Diamond ?


Moissanite is a gemstone born from the stars. It was first discovered in 1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan, who later won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He discovered microscopic particles of the gem that would eventually bear his name in Arizona, in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth. He initially thought that he had discovered diamonds, but later determined that the crystals were composed of silicon carbide.


Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so moissanite available today is laboratory-created. Moissanite 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.


Benefits of Moissanite

1. Mining Free :: Moissanite is lab created with minimal environmental impact.

2. Value :: Moissanite is less expensive per carat than many other gemstones.

3.Durability :: Moissanite is a 9.25 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, so it is suitable for everyday wear.



Selecting a Moissanite

While diamonds are graded on the 4 C’s scale (Cut, Clarity, Color, Carat), moissanites are graded solely on color. The cut and clarity is similar across different qualities of moissanites.


Which is better: moissanite or diamond?

It’s all about preference or what you want. Choose whichever stone feels right for you. Some people find the “disco-ball” effect that moissanite creates to be too much for them, while some people love the fire and price point of moissanite. Others love the romantic, classic appeal of diamonds and prefer the added assurance of hardness.


If you prefer the price point of moissanite but still want a diamond, there are lots of “hacks” to make your diamond less expensive. Contact RadheGems (radhegems22@gamil.com) and we can help you find a beautiful diamond within your price range.
