MOISSANITE IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN DIAMOND
When it comes to shear brilliance and beauty, Moissanite exceeds Diamond. Throughout history, Moissanite was too rare, mostly found only on meteorites, and could not be used for jewelry. It is only because man discovered means by which to create Moissanite that it became an option to Diamond. Moissanite has a refractive index of 2.69 vs Diamond at 2.42 and the consequence is that Moissanite looks brighter and has more sparkle – the effect is subtle, but euphoric. The overall effect is a gemstone that just looks better and exceeds expectations.
Diamonds and Moissanite in most other respects are very similar as to their physical properties. Both are very hard, tough, and look like the finest crystal. Both gem tones rely on molecular crystal structure to achieve similar amazing physical properties with Diamond being just slightly harder than Moissanite. Moissanite does not scratch easily and can be worn in the same fashion as Diamond and won’t dull or fade. Like Diamond, Moissanite will cut glass and is harder than all the other gemstones.
