A gemstone fallen from the stars
On earth, moissanite is one of the rarest minerals found in nature. Yet in space, it exists in carbon-rich environments such as meteorites, stars, and even stardust. Just a handful of crystals has been discovered on earth - always in extreme environments like meteorites, upper mantle rock, or even as tiny inclusions inside diamonds. Since naturally occurring moissanite on earth is so rare, moissanite available today is sustainably grown in a lab.
A real choice
Moissanite is just as real as any other gemstone. Emerald, ruby, diamond, moissanite - they are all different gemstones with different characteristics.
However, diamond and moissanite are so similar in appearance that most people can not tell them apart in regular lightning. The resemblance with diamond and the fact that it costs a fraction of a diamond makes moissanite a great budget alternative.
Created to last a lifetime
Rated at 9.5 on the Moh's hardness scale, moissanite is the second hardest jewelry quality gemstone. Unlike a diamond simulator, such as cubic zirconia, moissanite jewelry will last forever and can be passed down from generation to generation. The stone you purchase today will retain its color and clarity forever.
