Moissanite is a rare, naturally occurring mineral also known as silicon carbide, which was first discovered by the Nobel Prize-winning chemist, Dr. Henri Moissan, at the site of a massive meteorite strike in Arizona. This intriguing new stone was named “moissanite” in his honour.
It wasn’t until the late 90s that a group of scientists, –developed the innovative thermal growing process that creates silicon carbide crystals. These crystals are fashioned into Moissanite gemstones that rival any natural gemstone for fire and brilliance. These man-made gems are more durable than any other popular gemstone such as diamond, sapphire, ruby or emerald.
Radiant Beauty™ Moissanite uses this same thermal growing process today to create the worlds highest quality Moissanites.
