Why choose moissanite？
Hardness: On the Moh's Hardness Scale, moissaniteis rated as 9.25, which is higher than all other gemstones except diamond (Hardness grade: 10) meaning it will survive daily wear and tear just the same as a diamond would. Moissanites durability is excellent!
Fire/Brilliance: The Brilliance Refractive Index of moissanite is 2.65 - 2.69 on the scale, even a diamonds refractive index is not as high as this (Brilliance Refractive Index: 2.42). Its fire dispersion is over 4x greater than any other popular gemstone!
Can ordinary people tell the difference between moissanite and real diamond?
Moissanite and Diamond are both clear and sparkly. Moissanite and Diamonds are practically indistinguishable with the naked eye. In fact, even under a microscope, they are rarely different. A gemologist has to have a special tool to determine if a stone is a diamond or moissanite.
However, Moissanite should not be considered as a fake diamond. It is a gemstone with its own unique beauty. Since moissanite looks al lot like a diamond, it has become the most popular alternative to diamonds nowadays.
