Moissanite is an exceptional stone for many reasons, but probably the biggest of those reasons come from the fact that it is truly the most brilliant, sparkly gemstone on the planet. Moissanites have the highest refractive index, 2.4 times more fire, greater luster and durability than a diamond. Moissanites are also extremely hard, second only to diamonds on the Moh’s scale of hardness.
Many Jewelers consider moissanite to be a diamond alternative and not an imitation. Because of its beauty and durability, it is the preferred choice for making fine jewelry. Moissanite has more colors and fire and even exhibits flashes of rainbow color.
Like diamonds the larger the moissanite the more pronounced the color and with a hardness which is second only to diamonds, its durable and ready for everyday use in jewelry pieces.
