Moissanite Rings: Unique Designs
Moissanite was first discovered by a French scientist, Henri Moissan, in 1893. There was a massive meteorite shower where one fell to earth and the particles of this gem were embedded in its crater. At first, Henri and many other scientists thought Moissanite was a diamond but later recalled that the crystals they found were silicon carbide.
Now, Moissanite is loved by those who don’t want to have blood diamonds. This is because of the uncanny likeness to diamonds. Exceeding their diamond-like appearance, moissanite gems are known for their brilliance, durability, and attractive price.
Moissanite versus Diamonds
These two crystals are astonishingly similar in shapes, sizes, brilliance, and durability. The only thing setting them apart? Their price tags.
Moissanite gems often get overlooked as a diamond, but in fact, it is not. Diamonds are created by the compression of coal and minerals over many hundreds of years on the earth, while moissanite gems are created from the “sky.”
What is Moissanite?
Moissanite gems, in their natural form, are incredibly rare. Named after Nobel Prize-winning chemist Dr. Henri Moissan, these gems have only been discovered in a few rocks, from upper mantle rock to meteorites. Dr. Moissan discovered that the mineral inside a meteorite that hit Arizona in 1893 was silicon carbide, not a diamond.
Scientists in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, have developed a lab developing process that produces silicon carbide, which is formed into moissanite gemstones. This is the process of lab-created moissanite gemstones that you can purchase here at With Clarity.
Unique Designs With Different Moissanite Gemstones
With lab-created gems, especially Moissanite, there are so many options for the shapes and sizes that the gemstone can be. Moissanite is a sturdy and naturally heat-resistant material. They can be treated with heat to change their color, and some of the various options would include light green, dark green, as well as colorless to match a diamond, but these gems can be treated to virtually any color of your choosing.
Moissanite is typically considered a popular alternative to white diamonds. It has the same clear and sparkling appearance as a white diamond and is also natural. However, Moissanite varies in terms of its color refraction. It is a durable gemstone that is preceded only by a natural diamond.
