Moissanite was initially discovered in 1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan, known for winning a Nobel Prize. He discovered genuine Moissanite inside of a crater in Arizona that was created by a meteorite. When he discovered it, he thought he found diamonds, but later found that it was made of silicon carbide.

Natural Moissanite is very very rare on earth, so we must offer Lab Grown Moissanite, which is grown from the same natural materials the original genuine stones were made from. The They are engineered to shimmer and shine with extreme fire, but scientifically they are unlike a diamond. Moissanite is the only man made stone that we will work with, because of the unique properties and they’re absolutely conflict free.
These stones are not 'fake diamonds' at all. They are appreciated as an alternative, as their own special type of stone. The type of fire and brilliance is unmatched by even the best diamonds on earth because they shimmer rainbow tones, and have a higher refractive index. They have natural inclusions similar to all gemstones on earth because they are indeed all uniquely grown.
