The inner beauty of moissanite
Moissanite’s exceplional beauty is due to the physical, chemical and optical properties of its crystals. This gem has exceptional brilliance due to a remarkably high refractive index of 2.65-2.69, fire thanks to off-the-charts dispersion of 0.104, and shine is due to high surface luster of 20.4%.
Moissanite is the only synthetic diamond that has an incredible hardness rating of 9.25, it is just a little lower than diamond (10 being diamond), but higher than the other gems, high hardness makes it difficult to be scratched and cracked. This gem has exceptional brilliance due to a remarkably high refractive index of 2.65-2.69, fire thanks to off-the-charts dispersion of 0.104, and shine is due to a high surface luster of 20.4%. here’s how moissanite’s gemological characteristics compare to other gems.
The market value of moissanite
The price of diamond is high, it's value is actually derived from the characteristics of long-lasting sparkle, which defines people’s affection, love and friendship.

According to analysis of sales data from the global jewelry market, moissanite occupied 13% market shares of jewelry in 2013~2017, and it speeds up rapidly. In the same period, the traditional diamond market share decreased by 12%. In addition, the undue proliferation of 1-2 carats of diamonds in the market has led to the lack of preservation or appreciation of value. It is used to make daily jewelry and has a low cost performance. It is of little value for collection. Compared with it, moissanite is more suitable for daily wearing jewelry, now moissanite is the best choice for fashion.
