What is Moissanite?
Moissanite is a mineral discovered by French chemist Henri Moissan in 1893 while studying a small fragment of a meteorite in Arizona. This rare mineral is mostly found on cool luminous stars outside our solar system and can be found in minute amounts on Earth. Due to its stellar origin, moissanite is sometimes referred to as Stardust or Space Diamonds. Since it's rare to find moissanite in its natural form, all forms used for jewelry are lab created.
