Moissanite: The Jewel with a Story

The Beauty of Moissanite

This stunningly-created jewel has a past as brilliant as its shine.

Fifty thousand years ago a meteorite crashed into the Arizona desert creating what is now known as "Meteor Crater." Fragments of this meteorite were scattered across the desert. Hidden in these fragments was a brilliant secret waiting to be discovered.

In 1893, Nobel-Prize winning scientist Henri Moissan began studying fragments of this meteorite from the nearby Diablo Canyon. In these fragments Dr. Moissan discovered minute quantities of a shimmering new mineral, with fire and brilliance never before seen on earth.

After extensive research, Dr. Moissan concluded that this mineral was made of silicon carbide. In 1905, this mineral was named Moissanite, in his honour. Despite this amazing discovery, since naturally occurring quantities of Moissanite are so minute, it would be another century before this stunning mineral would emerge as the brilliantly-produced jewel it is today. In fact, it would take until the 1980s to convince the scientific community as a whole that Moissanite was even created in nature on this planet.
