Lab created Moissanite – Man made Moissanite – Synthetic Moissanite
A century ago, Dr. Henri Moissan discovered minute quantities of a new mineral in an ancient meteorite in Arizona. At its essence was the potential for an absolutely shimmering brilliance, fire, luster, and incredible hardness. Unfortunately, the supply of natural moissanite wasn’t large enough even to create a pair of earrings. It was only after years of research that a breakthrough discovery enabled the limited production & distribution of lab created moissanite “a new diamond simulate” by Charles & Colvard , with crystals large enough to produce an uncommon combination of science and art. The man-made diamond thus was named Moissanite, in the honor of Dr. Henri Moissan
Lab created moissanite or man-made moissanite is silicon carbide formed as a single crystal. It is available as near colorless or as a limited number of green and yellow tints. It is made by patented thermal growing process which is very difficult and performed by only one company in the world.
Most people prefer lab created moissanite or synthetic diamond as they are inexpensive ,more durable and more sparky that a natural diamond . This product is a unique lab-created jewel with properties people expect to see in fine jewelry.
