A brief introduction to Moissanite
Moissanite jewellery is becoming more popular, but it’s still relatively unknown in comparison to gems like diamonds, emeralds or sapphires. Moissanite was discovered in a crater in Arizona in the 1890s and it is named after the man who first stumbled across it, Henri Moissan. At first, Moissan thought the rock was diamonds, but on closer inspection, unique properties were identified, and Moissanite as we know it came into being. It is extremely rare to come across natural Moissanite, and pieces are often crafted using lab-generated Moissanite. Moissanite is sometimes known as stardust or the space diamond, as it can be found in the rocks that form the Earth’s upper mantle, most commonly meteorites.
