Moissanite is a rare mineral found in very limited quantities or as minute particles in the earth. It is a natural silicon carbide within a meteorite. It is also called (SiC) silicon carbide.
Moissante is the Jewels Born from the Stars™ - perfected on Earth.
Harder than Sapphire and Ruby, and second in hardness only to diamond, it is acclaimed for its exceptional brilliance and fire.
Meteorite carrying a trace amount of silicon carbide crashes to the Earth, creating a meteor crater in Arizona, called Canyon Diablo. Particles will not be discovered until modern times. In 1893 French scientist Dr. Henri Moissan examines small geological samples and discovers crystals with extraordinary sparkle. As you can conclude the natural mineral is named after Dr Henri Moissa - in 1905 - an honor recommended by mineralogist, gem experts and former vice president of Tiffany & Co.
These natural silicon carbide crystals were so rare and unrefined, they couldn't be used to make jewelry. It was in the 1980's with the combination of advanced science and propriety technology, that gem-quality silicon carbide was lab-created and finally produced and available for use in jewelry.
In 1995, with the collaboration of a master gem cutter and a world-renowned scientist in the field of physical chemistry, a spectacular jewel with incredible visual characteristics would emerge.
1998 Charles & Colvard created Moissanite and we saw its debute in the jewelry industry. Charles & Colvard remain the sole source of Moissanite today, making the jewel available in many stores. Across the world people today enjoy and cherish the unique brilliance of stunning Moissanite Jewelry.
