History

Moissanite is a rare, naturally occurring mineral also known as silicon carbide, which was first discovered by the Nobel Prize-winning chemist, Dr. Henri Moissan at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. This intriguing new stone was named moissanite in his honor.

It wasn’t until the late 90’s that scientists — working in a research laboratory located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina — developed the innovative thermal growing process that creates silicon carbide crystals. These crystals are fashioned into moissanite gemstones that rival any earthly gemstone for fire and brilliance. These gems are more durable than diamond, sapphire, ruby or emerald.

The chemical composition of Moissanite lends itself to a wide variety of cuts with the clarity to match. Allow its luminous fire to bewilder you, and the versatility of this stone to redefine the perception of value of gemstones.
