Born from a meteorite that fell in Arizona over 50,000 years ago, moissanite is a rare and unique gemstone that sets the standard for a new category of sustainable gemstones. The Nobel-Prize winner chemist Dr. Henri Moissan discovered moissanite in a meteor crater in 1893. Dr. Moissan identified the crystals as a new mineral known today as Silicon Carbide (SiC).

Our moissanite resembles diamonds and is indistinguishable from them with the naked eye. Diamonds have a refractive index (brilliance) of 2.42, while our moissanite has 2.65. IceMoissanite has more than double the dispersion of diamonds (0.044) at a grade of 0.104. Therefore, IceMoissanite's brilliance and fire exceed the one of diamonds. In addition, the hardness of a diamond is 10, and moissanite is second at 9.25.

Moissanite and Cubic Zirconia (CZ) have very little in common except that they belong to the category of "diamond simulants" or "artificial diamonds." The most significant difference is that cubic zirconium does not have the brilliance of moissanite, and it is way softer. Because it is easily scratched, Cubic zirconium becomes dull and clouded during everyday wear and looks like a piece of salt rock over time.

Lab-grown gemstones offer many benefits. They are more affordable than natural gemstones of comparable quality and size. They are also more environmentally and ethically sustainable since they are grown in controlled lab conditions. Additionally, lab-grown gemstones often have fewer inclusions or impurities than natural ones, making them appear more brilliant.

We do! We offer lab-grown Luminaqua, diamonds, emeralds, rubies, blue sapphires, pink sapphires, purple sapphires, padparadscha stones, and more. When you buy a lab-grown gem, you do not have to worry about mining, war conflict, or ethical and environmental issues. Our gemstones possess the same chemical, physical, and optical characteristics as the naturally occurring ones.

Luminaqua is a lab-grown gemstone closely resembling the extremely rare Paraiba tourmaline. Its distinctive neon-blue color, impeccable clarity, and remarkable 8.5 Mohs hardness are achieved through a unique proprietary process, making the gemstone perfect for everyday wear. Like moissanite, it is grown in a lab using sustainable and ethical practices.

We offer IceMoissanite gemstones. Their specifications are comparable to DEF (colorless) and VVS (Very Very Slightly Included) clarity diamonds and are almost perfect on the 4Cs scale. With a Mohs Scale hardness of 9.25, our moissanite is more durable than emeralds, rubies, and sapphires and second only to diamonds. Each IceMoissanite gemstone purchase includes a limited lifetime warranty certifying its exceptional optical qualities.

No! Moissanite is a durable and long-lasting gemstone. It is highly resistant to scratches, abrasions, breaking, and chipping. Moissanite can retain its brilliance and beauty for many years with proper care and maintenance. It is essential to avoid exposing moissanite to harsh chemicals and to have it professionally cleaned and inspected periodically.

Moissanite can be cleaned and cared for in the same way as diamonds. We recommend regular cleaning with a mild detergent and warm water, followed by thorough rinsing and drying. Avoid exposing your gemstones and jewelry to harsh chemicals such as chlorine, which can cause discoloration and damage to the stone. You can read our care guide by clicking here.
