Mineral moissanites was discovered by Henri Moissan while examining rock samples from a meteor crater located in Canyon Diablo, Arizona, in 1893. Artificial silicon carbide had been synthesized in the lab just two years prior to Moissan’s discovery by Edward G. Acheson.
The crystalline structure is held together with strong covalent bonding similar to diamonds, that allows moissanites to withstand high pressures up to 52.1 gigapascals. Colours vary widely and are graded in the D-H-J range on the diamond color grading scale.
All of moissanites grade basic on diamond, then it will easy to compared with diamond.
According to these pictures showed, we can saw that moissanites is closed to diamond, but the point is how much dollars it is which we most care about. And is it test as real diamond does?
The good news is moissanites just cost about 1/10 of diamond price. It means that we can spend less money to fulfill our carat dream by moissanites instead of diamond. And it is positive test as diamond does. It means we can customized a same design moissanites jewelry to instead of our diamond jewelry to join any party and activities, and never afraid to loose our expensive diamond jewelry in these place. And nobody can found they are moissanites.
