The history of moissanite
Brilliance born from the stars
To learn about moissanite, we must start in the beginning. In 1893, Nobel-Prize winning scientist Dr. Henri Moissan began studying fragments of a meteorite that had crashed into the Arizona deset. He concluded that it contained minute quantities of a shimmering new mineral that was made of silicon carbide. This new mineral was later named moissanite in Dr. Moissan's honor. Since naturally occurring moissanite is rare, the mineral was synthesized into the stunning lab-created gemstone that we know today.
