What is Moissanite?

 Moissanite is a gemstone that originates from outer space. In 1893,    Nobel-Prize winning French scientist Henri Moissan discovered moissanite in a meteor-impact crater in Arizona. 

 At first glance, he thought he had found diamonds, only later to discover that these crystal structures were one-of-a-kind: moissanite. Today, all jewelry grade moissanite is lab grown under heat and pressure to form rough which is then cut and polished into the beautiful gemstones you see here. 

Moissanite is the second hardest gemstone on earth; second only to diamond. It registers as a 9.5 out of 10 on the MOHS scale (with a diamond being about 10) and is stronger than sapphire and ruby. Moissanite is scratch resistant, durable, and a beautiful gemstone that is strong enough for daily wear. Unlike pearls or sapphires which would scratch easily with regular wear and tear, moissanite does not, making it much more suitable for engagement rings. Since moissanite wont cloud or grow foggy (unlike cz or other diamond simulants), moissanite is an heirloom-worthy stone that could be passed and enjoyed for generations.
