What Is Moissanite?
Moissanite is an exceptionally beautiful and extremely rare mineral, which occurs naturally in the form of silicon carbide. Almost 2.5 times more brilliant than a diamond, this near-colorless gem has its own distinctive properties and splendor that make it truly one-of-a-kind.
Moissanite was named after French chemist Henri Moissan, who discovered it in the year 1893. During the examination of rock samples from a meteor crater located in Canyon Diablo, Arizona, he spotted this crystal and mistook it for a diamond. It was only after 11 years that he was able to identify it as silicon carbide.
The rarity of this gem also led scientists to find a way to synthetically create it using particles of naturally occurring moissanites.
Moissanite has a refractive index that is higher than that of a diamond and other popular gems such as sapphire and ruby. This particular property determines the brilliance of a gem, and with a refractive index of 2.65 to 2.69, a moissanite certainly outshines every other stone.
The same can be said about its dispersion (fire), which refers to the spectral (rainbow) colors that reflect back when light enters a non-opaque object. Moissanite has a dispersion of 0.104, which exceeds all other gemstones. With us you can get quality custom engagement rings South Africa.
Why Choose Moissanite?

Affordable: This splendid gem does not just have exceptional brilliance and fire; it is also affordable and costs only a fraction of a diamond’s price.
Durability: Tough and durable, they are resistant to chipping and scratches. This makes them a wonderful option for daily-wear jewellery.
