Moissanite is indeed a Natural, Genuine Stone that is so rare in Nature that only a few small pieces still exist. It was first discovered in Canyon Diablo in a Meteorite in 1893, by Dr. Henri Moissan, who at the time mistook the stone for a Diamond. It is discovered later to be a new mineral similar to Diamonds, but at the same time, awfully different in many, many ways! Later it’s found that Moissanite is made in the lab. And so that is the reason Charles and Colvard start SIC (silicon carbide single crystal of the highest quality) to make the cut and polish Moissanite. The hardness of black moissanite hits 9.25 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. That is closely as hard as diamonds and almost as unbreakable. Black moissanites are very hard and they don’t scratch easily. Comparing the black moissanites with other black stones, they won’t lose their shine and luster easily. The Black moissanite price is not as expensive as diamonds, it's easy to buy loose black moissanite at wholesale price from our company.

What you need to know about moissanite:
Moissanite is actually more brilliant than a diamond, because its higher “refractive index” (Diamond’s is 2.42, whereas Moissanite’s is 2.65) and moissanite has a higher dispersion than a diamond. That's why your moissanite will look like a firework next to a diamond.
Moissanite stays super sparkly for its whole life, due to its superior hardness and great refractive index. So you never have to worry about it's beoming dull, losing its brilliance, or getting foggy. Like a diamond, it can keep fire, beautiful and brilliant forever !
Moissanite is a very hard gem, but not quite as hard as diamond. On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, moissanite is rated as a 9.25. It's great higher than any gemstone used in jewelry besides diamonds( diamond is 10 score , the hardest known mineral in the world). The harder a material, the more difficult it is to scratch.
Moissanite is a fraction of the cost of a diamond. Also, while a diamond’s price varies based on cut, clarity, and other individual characteristics, moissanite varies only with type and size. Moissanite is a great option for couples on a budget, those looking for a man-made option for sustainable reasons, or those who simply do not feel the need to spend a lot on a ring.
