What is Moissanite?
Moissanite is a very rare space crystal found naturally occurring only in meteorites. Because of its scarcity, all moissanite used for jewelry has to be meticulously lab-created, making them conflict-free and eco-friendly. Moissanite is made of silicon carbide (50% silicon and 50% carbon), whereas diamond is 100% carbon. You can say moissanite is diamond’s half-sister, and because of its similar optical properties and toughness, it is fast becoming one of the most desired gemstones in the world. Buying from My Moissanite ensures that you will be getting the highest quality moissanite available on the market. All stones come with a Certificate of Authenticity and a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
What are Lab Diamonds?
Lab diamonds have the exact same chemical composition as mined diamonds except they are created in a lab, making them conflict-free and eco-friendly. Because they are pure carbon, they also share the same optical properties and hardness as mined diamonds. Measuring a 10 on the Mohs scale, no other gemstone can match diamond’s durability and toughness. Lab diamonds generally look flawless to the naked eye as they lack the visible inclusions that some mined diamonds have. However, some minute imperfections can still be seen under a microscope. As for the cost of lab diamonds, the price is not controlled in the same way mined diamonds are, making them much less expensive than the equivalent mined diamond.
