No! Moissanite Is Not A Simulated Diamond
A number of our dear customers have asked us to enlighten them about Moissanite. One of the common questions they ask “is a Moissanite a fake diamond or a simulated diamond?” Well the answer to this is NO! And here’s why…
WHAT IS MOISSANITE?
Moissanite is a rare, naturally occurring mineral also known as silicon carbide, which was first discovered by the Nobel Prize-winning chemist Dr. Henri Moissan at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. You heard that right! Moissanite came from the stars.
IS MOISSANITE A BRAND OF DIAMOND OR A SIMULATED DIAMOND?
No. Moissanite is not a substitute for diamond, either scientifically or chemically. Moissanite is a UNIQUE gem with its own set of chemical and optical properties that exhibit more fire and brilliance than any other gemstone.
Let’s get this straight, moissanite is completely different from a diamond. Yes, it looks like a diamond. It feels like a diamond. Its thermal qualities are difficult to distinguish from those of a diamond. But best of all, a moissanite actually out-performs a diamond in terms of optics, and is still durable and scratch resistant enough to be worn every day and last a lifetime!
“Moissanite doesn’t simulate, it surpasses diamond”
Moissanite doesn't try and simulate a diamond, it surpasses it in many important ways including brilliance, fire, lustre, toughness, resistance to heat, without even mentioning the obvious: price. However, not all Moissanites are the same! To learn more about Moissanite FAQs click here. And to compare Moissanite and Diamond in a head to head battle click here.
