What exactly is moissanite?

What is the difference between it and the diamonds you see?

Next, I will tell you the answer in the most popular language.

Moissanite is a type of laboratory-synthesized gemstone. There is almost no difference between it and diamond to the naked eye

The scientific name of moissanite is synthetic silicon carbide.

The refractive index of moissanite is 2.67, diamond (2.42); the dispersion value is 0.104, diamond (0.044), with a strong "fire"; the hardness is 9.5, second only to diamond (10). The characteristics of high refractive index, high dispersion and high hardness make moissanite a substitute for the new generation of diamonds.

Because the appearance of moissanite is very similar to that of diamonds, non-appraisers cannot distinguish between the two except using professional instruments. Therefore, in the eyes of some people, moissanite is equivalent to imitation diamonds. In fact, this statement has no basis. Moissanite Although its appearance is similar to diamonds, its properties are completely different from diamonds. It has an astonishing brilliance that diamonds and other gemstones do not have. Imitation diamond, is it wrong to say that moissanite looks like diamond?

The price of moissanite is less than one-tenth of that of diamonds. Perhaps the mistake is that moissanite is not only beautiful but also expensive.
