Moissanite

by CHARLES & COLVARD

Introduced in June of 2018, Moissanite by Charles & Colvard gemstones raise the bar on the global moissanite market. These exquisite gemstones are made available to compete in price with foreign-developed moissanite. While generally imperceptible to the naked eye, magnification may reveal ever-so-slight imperfections in clarity, cut or polish, that are widely acceptable to consumers. Moissanite by Charles & Colvard gemstones are the perfect choice for the value-conscious consumer, as it yields some of the best bling for the buck.

* Charles & Colvard, Ltd.’s Forever One® manufacturing process starts with silicon carbide (SiC) material manufactured by Cree, Inc. through its patented “micropipe-free, single crystal, silicon carbide (SiC) and related method of manufacture” growing process.

Brilliance: 2.65 - 2.69

Through proprietary faceting and Revolutionary Cuts, Charles & Colvard created moissanite optimizes this unique gemstone’s refractive index, known as brilliance. With a brilliance range of 2.65 – 2.69, moissanite is the world’s most brilliant gem – exceeding all mined and created gemstones with more sparkle.

Fire: 0.104

Fire dispersion, or scintillation, measures a gemstone’s ability to break white light into its component colors. Due to its double refractive optical quality, moissanite emits sparks of color from the light that enters the stone. Moissanite’s fire measures 0.104 on the dispersion index – nearly two and a half times that of diamonds.

Hardness: 9.25 - 9.50

Hardness is a measure of a stone’s durability. Soft gemstones can scratch or chip if worn daily. Moissanite is the world’s hardest mineral, and is harder than any other gemstone except diamond. On the Moh’s Scale of Hardness, moissanite measures 9.25 – 9.5 compared to a diamond’s measurement of 10.0, and as a result, Charles & Colvard guarantees its gemstones for a lifetime.
