First discovered in 1893, moissanite is often mistaken for genuine diamonds. Even under a microscope, professional jewelers have a hard time distinguishing a moissanite stone from a real diamond. There are a few distinct differences between a moissanite stone and a genuine diamond. They have different chemical compositions and physical properties when looked at closely under magnification. A diamond is composed of carbon; moissanite is chemically composed of silicon carbide. Moissanite has a more brilliant sparkle and far greater rainbow fire than diamonds. Moissanite is also created as perfect. There is no color grade, inclusion chart or cloudiness to worry about with moissanite stones versus diamonds.
