MORE ABOUT MOISSANITE

Moissanite is a sparkling mineral with unrivaled fire and brilliance that was discovered in 1893 by Nobel Prize winner Henri Moissan.

The material was identified in meteorite pieces found in the Arizona desert near Diablo Canyon. Dr. Moissan determined after lengthy investigation that this mineral was composed of silicon carbide.

George Kunz, a well-known gem specialist and mineralogist, proposed the name "moissanite" for the new jewel in recognition of Dr. Moissan's contribution. Dr. Moissan spent the rest of his life attempting to replicate his astounding discovery but was never successful.

 

Many modern couples want to get the most bang for their buck, which is why moissanite, the less costly engagement ring stone, is popular. Since it is atomically stable, moissanite is equivalent to a diamond in terms of its ability to maintain its color and optical qualities throughout time.
