First discovered in 1893 by a French scientist, Henri Moissan in Arizona, Moissanite is a near-colorless gemstone that's composed of silicon carbide. Moissanite is extremely rare to find in nature, therefore the Moissanite we know today is lab-created. Compared to mined diamonds, lab-created Moissanite gemstones have a different chemical makeup & have a smaller carbon footprint, resulting in less negative environmental impact. They are a popular diamond alternative stone because of their impeccable resemblance and durability for everyday wear. Not only do they have a striking resemblance to real diamonds, but they're also extremely affordable, allowing you to get the engagement ring and carat size of your dreams.
