Moissanite has more Brilliance than Diamonds, which means more sparkle! Best of all, it costs only a fraction of the price of Diamonds!
Moissanite has more “fire” than Diamonds. The so-called “fire” effect is another name for dispersion of light, which refers to how the gem breaks down light into spectral colors. When light enters Moissanite, the fire produced is more intense than that in diamond, which means your gemstone reflects more intense colors.
Moissanite is the second hardest material on Earth! It is highly scratch and chip resistant due to its hardness of 9.25 to 9.5 on the Mohs Scale.
HIGHEST REFRACTIVE INDEX
Moissanite has a property known as double refraction, when a ray of light passes through the gemstone it is slowed, bent and split in two.
To some degree it is this property that gives Moissanite its amazing fire. Every double refractive gem has at least one direction in which the material behaves like a singly refractive gem.
This is referred to as the optic axis, and does not break light into two rays.
