From the big brands like charles & colvard to unbranded and private label moissanite, i have sampled them all.
What makes this black label moissanite different is the fact that it sparkles with the same colors as a real diamond. A natural diamond flashes deep blues, reds and green. However, for example, c&c's def forever one line does not. C&c gives of pastel pinks and greens, which is not what you would get from a natural diamond.The depth of a stone can have a big effect on the surface size. A deeper cut stone can have a high carat weight, but be the same surface size and a stone with lower carat weight. Moissanite was first discovered in the late 1800's inside of a meteorite.
The scientist who made the discovery first believed the stone to be diamond. After testing the stone, it was learned that this was a different and undiscovered stone completely. Since then, moissanite has been discovered in a few other sources, mainly israel. While over 2500 moissanite crystals have been found over the past 16 years, the largest single piece of rough was only 4.1mm.Moissanite has never been found in sizes large. Enough to cut and make jewelry from. While natural moissanite does exist in very small size and quantity, there is no natural moissanite available in the market anywhere. Lab created moissanite is the only available option for owning moissanite. Lab created moissanite is chemically a real moissanite gemstone.
The only difference is that the environment in which it is grown was created by science in a lab, not naturally in the earth. Once grown, the rough crystal material is individually hand cut and polished by skilled gem cutters. The same method used for cutting diamonds and other gemstones.Moissanite is the second hardest gemstone available. Diamond being the first at 10 on the mohs scale of hardness. Moissanite being 2nd at 9.25, and sapphire/ruby coming in 3rd at 9. Many varieties of gemstones are too soft to set in jewelry with assurance that the stone will not be broken and damaged over time. This is what puts diamond at the top of the food chain.
A moissanite's hardness insures that the investment made in the stone will last for a lifetime. There are other factors that make moissanite an appealing gemstone.
Moissanites have a significantly higher rate of light dispersion (fire) than diamonds. Bursts of rainbow colored fire that emerge when the moissanite is under light is a truly beautiful and rare sight.
There are many beautiful gemstones out there, but few have the sparkle power of a moissanite stone. Moissanite, like diamond is also a highly lusterous stone. This means that the surface of the stone appears slick and shiny at all times. For this reason, a moissanite shows it's strengths even in cuts that don't ordinarily create much sparkle.
A round brilliant cut is the most sparkly gemstone cut you can get, but even step cut moissanites (emerald and asscher cuts) display far more shine and sparkle than other gemstones would.
