Moissanite has been a source of intense interest ever since its discovery over a century ago. Also known as silicon carbide, moissanite dances with sparkles of bright light which exceeds any rational expectation. Its unique internal beauty lends a riveting allure to jewelry, making a spectacular statement at a fraction of the cost of other gemstones. But only you know what you paid – envious passers-by see only a grand statement of opulence.
Born From the Stars
Natural silicon carbide is impossibly rare on Earth; in fact, it first gained fame when tiny particles were discovered by the Nobel Prize-winning French chemist Dr. Henri Moissan at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. This intriguing new stone was named Moissanite in his honor, and Moissan spent the rest of his life attempting to re-create this rare mineral, which is among the hardest materials on Earth.
Many years later at a North Carolina research campus, Charles & Colvard®, perfected and patented the innovative process that creates silicon carbide crystals with such purity that it rivals any earthly gemstone for fire and brilliance. In these gems, which are more durable than diamond, sapphire, ruby, or emerald, this fire and brilliance will last forever.
