Education Moissanite

Moissanite is a gemstone from the stars. That's right, it's from space! Natural moissanite is extremely rare and prized among many.

The crystals are composed of silicon carbide and are named after the French scientist who discovered the unique stone from a meteorite in Arizona. Nowadays, moissanite is mostly lab-created since it's so rare and expensive. While the illusion is extremely similar to a real diamond, its composition is quite different. Like diamonds, these stones are incredibly hard and durable, scoring a 9-9.5 on the Mohs scale.

The sparkle is a bit different than diamonds, because their facet pattern is different. Some call the brilliance from a moissanite gemstone the "disco ball effect," especially in the sunlight. The larger the moissanite center stone is, the more obvious it is to differentiate between it and a real diamond.

At TwoBirch, we have standardized Brilliant Moissanite by TwoBirch as our quality. Brilliant Moissanite is our proprietary Moissanite. These are ideal for anyone who wants a stone with superior visual appeal, that out sparkles and outshines all the rest, while staying in budget! This is why they earned the name Brilliant by TwoBirch.
