Published: 13/01/2018

Where does Moissanite come from – is it a natural stone or is it man made?

Natural Moissanite does occur, but found in tiny, limited quantities or as minute particles in the earth and rare crystals. The amount of naturally occurring gem quality Moissanite is so rare that there would not be enough material to create one pair of solitaire earrings. Therefore Moissanites used in jewellery are all grown in a laboratory. Lab created moissanite or man-made moissanite is silicon carbide formed as a single crystal.

Where did the name Moissanite come from?

Discovered in 1893 by French Nobel Prize-winner, Dr. Henri Moissan, the jewel was later named in his honour.
