What is Moissanite?
Moissanite is a rare, naturally occurring mineral also known as silicon carbide. Named after Nobel Prize-winning chemist Dr. Henri Moissan, moissanite was first discovered in 1893 at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. Scientists in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina later developed the thermal growing process that creates silicon carbide crystals, which are fashioned into moissanite gemstones.
Diamonds are traditional, white gems with sparkle and fire that has made them a sought-after luxury jewelry item both for their beauty and their rarity. But, if you’re searching for a gemstone that will stand out from the crowd, look no further than moissanite. Our process not only allows us to offer beautiful, socially responsible jewelry at an incredible value, but also ensures the quality of your moissanite gems.
While diamonds are created from the compression of coal and minerals over many hundreds of years in the earth, moissanite comes from the stars. Originally, this rare gem was found in fragments of meteorite in pieces so small that cutting a gemstone from them was impossible. After many years of work, this rare, natural mineral was successfully grown in a lab. This process allows BhumiGems to create some of the most brilliant and beautiful colorless gems, rivaling the traditional beauty of diamonds in clarity and size – and outshining diamonds with their brilliance and fire.
