Whether one had reached a milestone in life, made the first pot of gold, found a significant other to tie the knot with, or sourcing an overdue gift for a loved one, look no further than a Moissanite stone to lock in significant moments.
What is Moissanite and is there any difference between the Diamond or Cubic Zirconia?
Moissanite is a naturally occurring silicon carbide with a chemical compound SiC and a rare mineral discovered by French chemist Henri Moissan. Cubic Zircona, otherwise also known as Zirconium Dioxide ZrO2 contains zirconium and oxygen. Since Diamond is pure carbon, the Moissanite comes closer to Diamond than Cubic Zirconia. Moissanite is also doubly refractive due to the structure of the stone which increases light dispersion and hence channels brilliance and fire. Note Moissanite stones are not completely white and transparent due to the natural structure but its hues bear close resemblance to the Diamond.
