Moissanite is a mineral that is chemically known as silicon carbide (SiC). It was first discovered in 1893 by French chemist Henri Moissan while examining samples from a meteorite crater in Arizona. Moissanite has gained popularity in recent years as an alternative to diamonds due to its physical properties and affordability. In this article, we will explore the properties of moissanite in detail.
The fact that Sometimes people do compare between moissanite and diamonds but moissnites is not worthy with diamonds.
So, you cannot compare with moissanite and diamonds.
The most important about the two thing is that moissanites is lab made and artificial while diamond is natural.
Being natural diamonds are always costly and the rarer and the more pure the diamond is more costly.
If you are going to compare the chemical properties diamonds and moissanites are the same because moissanites are made from the same properties through which the diamonds are made of.
Though chemically same, some physical properties are different between moissanite vs diamonds. Like – the total internal reflection is more in diamonds compared with moissanites. In case of hardness, the diamonds are more hard compared with moissanites and so on. Though moissanite is one of the hardest minerals known to man, with a rating of 9.25 on the Mohs scale of hardness. The only mineral that is harder than moissanite is diamond, which has a rating of 10. This makes moissanite an excellent choice for jewelry that will be worn daily, as it is highly resistant to scratches and abrasions.
Moissanite also has a high refractive index of 2.65, which means it is very good at bending light. This property gives moissanite a high level of brilliance and fire, which is why it is often compared to diamonds. In fact, moissanite can exhibit more fire than a diamond, which makes it a popular choice for engagement rings and other jewelry.
Moissanite is a relatively clean mineral, with very few inclusions or blemishes. This means that it is very clear and transparent, which enhances its brilliance and fire. However, moissanite can sometimes exhibit a type of internal structure called "grain boundaries," which can cause it to appear hazy or cloudy in some lighting conditions.
