What is moissanite?

Moissanite is a naturally-occurring mineral made up of silicon carbide first discovered by a chemist named Dr. Henri Moissan. While exploring the site of a massive meteor strike, Moissan came across microscopic particles that he assumed were diamond. Later, he realized that they had a completely different chemical makeup. This captivating new stone was rightfully given the name, “moissanite.” King Jewelers invites you to visit our store located in Nashville, Tennessee to explore our wide selection of loose moissanite gemstones as well as moissanite jewelry.

Natural occurring moissanite is incredibly rare

Scientists have perfected the art of creating moissanite within a controlled laboratory setting. As a result, the creation of moissanite is ecologically-friendly and conflict-free. Since moissanite is developed in such large quantities, they are available at a fraction of the cost of diamonds. There are several factors that differentiate moissanite and diamond. Moissanite reflects iridescent colors in direct sunlight because it has a higher refractive index, or brilliance, than diamond. However, diamonds are still the more durable gemstone. Diamond ranks 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, the highest rating possible, while moissanite ranks 9.25. Nevertheless, moissanite is still perfectly suitable for everyday wear, leading many to choose it for their engagement ring.
