18K White Gold 3CT Round Moissanite Criss Cross Engagement Ring
Moissanite is grown from silicon carbide. It is very difficult to tell apart a diamond & moissanite, making moissanite a spectacular diamond alternative.
Moissanite was originally discovered in a meteor crater in 1893 by scientist Henri Moissan. He mistakenly believed the crystals he found were diamonds. Naturally occurring moissanite is extremely rare. Because of this, most of the moissanite on the market is lab grown. It can take 2-3 months to create a single moissanite stone in a lab.
