Moissanite was born from a meteorite which fell in Arizona over 50,000 years ago. It was first discovered by the Nobel-Prize winner chemist Dr. Henri Moissan on a meteor crater in 1893. Dr. Moissan identified the crystals as a new mineral known as silicon carbide. Natural moissanite is extremely rare and almost impossible to find. For more than a century, the dream of using moissanite on jewelry was impossible, until scientists discovered a way to grow these incredible crystals in a lab.
EcoMoissanite is an authorised retailer of IceMoissanite gems. All our gems are colorless (DEF) and are almost perfect on the 4Cs scale. In fact, our moissanite cannot be differentiated from diamonds with naked eyes. IceMoissanite has nearly 2.4 times more fire and 10% more brilliance and luster than diamonds. With a Mohs Scale hardness of 9.25, IceMoissanite is harder than emeralds, rubies or sapphires and second only to diamonds. IceMoissanite is extremely resistant to scratching, abrasion, breaking and chipping. No other moissanite gem compares to IceMoissanite!
Brilliance is the term used to describe light return, which is the foundation of IceMoissanite’s unparalleled brightness and sparkle. As light hits the surface of the gem, some enters the stone, while some is reflected back. IceMoissanite’s excellent cut grade means that your precious gem will exude a high degree of both fire and brilliance, attained by its perfectly balanced and symmetrically aligned facets. IceMoissanite is the most brilliant gem in the market today!
LAB GROWN DIAMONDS
The timeless beauty of diamonds has enhanced the most gorgeous rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces worn by royalty, entrepreneurs and iconic film stars. The finest examples are famous in their own right. It is not surprising that many people aspire to own a diamond for themselves or to gift it to a loved one.
But a perfect stone may have imperfect origins. Natural diamonds are associated with political conflict and oppression, not to mention the serious concerns about mining practices and negative environmental impact. For this reason, many customers are now choosing lab-grown diamonds as an ethical alternative to the mined ones. A lab-grown diamond (sometimes called man-made diamond) is the result of a technological process, as opposed to the geological process which gives birth to natural diamonds.
Our lab-grown diamonds have essentially the same chemical composition, crystal structure, optical and physical properties of diamonds found in nature. Most lab-grown diamonds are categorized as either High-Pressure, High-Temperature (HPHT) or Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) diamonds, depending on the method of their production.
LAB GROWN EMERALDS
Emerald, the green variety of Beryl, is the most famous and valuable green gemstone. Its beautiful deep green color, combined with its durability and rarity, make the Emerald one of the most expensive gemstones in the market and one of the most desirable to own. Emeralds are graded on a scale ranging from AAA (most valuable) to B (least valuable). All lab-grown emeralds offered by EcoMoissanite are graded AAA for their superior quality and for containing no inclusions. This is a preferable choice, since inclusions can be seen as flaws within the gem. Just like our lab-grown diamonds, our lab- grown emeralds are identical to natural ones in their chemical composition and in appearance.
LAB GROWN RUBIES
Ruby is one of the most distinguishable varieties of the corundum mineral species, which also include sapphire. Natural rubies command the highest per-carat price of any colored gemstone. This makes the ruby one of the most recognizable colored gems. From deep pink to bright red, the ‘gemstone of passion’ is highly sought after by jewelers and celebrities alike. The inclusions and impurities that are often found in natural gems are not present in our lab-grown rubies. Still, our lab created rubies possess the same chemical, physical, and optical characteristics as the naturally occurring ones. This fact makes them seem “too” perfect.
LAB GROWN SAPPHIRES
Renowned for its gorgeous deep blue colour, the sapphire is a very popular gemstone for engagement rings. Blue sapphire belongs to the mineral species corundum. EcoMoissanite's sapphires are grown in a laboratory under controlled and monitored conditions. Sapphires are made from corundum, both in nature (where they are mined) and in our labs (where they are harvested once the predetermined development period is over). Because no synthetic material is used to replace the corundum used to create sapphires, natural and lab-grown sapphires are virtually indistinguishable from one another.
