A decent competitor of diamond

Diamonds are considered as the queen of gem stones and still remain the superstar of the jewelry. Without absolute brilliance they are still in the hearts of the whole world and many believe that there is nothing in this world to replace the diamond. But now it’s time for the diamond to take some rest as a superstar of the jewelries as someone who is similar to him is finding his way out here. This gem fondly called as amora moissanite has a brilliance and physical stability similar to that of diamond.

Origin and other story

In the year of 1893, a chemistry scientist named as Henry moissian found a stone from the Arizona, the place where a meteor hit the earth. The material was shinning similarly like a diamond and initially thought to be diamond itself. But after several years in the year of 1904 it was found that it contains silicon carbide and the inventor was later awarded with the Nobel Prize. The gem is also named after him.

The gem is rarely found in the nature and is now prepared in the lab by the scientist. But they are abundantly available in space and they are forming the stardust along with the carbon di oxide. Other than these places they are also available in certain diamond mines but cannot be considered as a nominal amount even.

Quality and purity

The original element before processing has a greenish and yellowish tint. But when they come to the hands of the consumer they are treated many times with the high pressure and high temperature and hence with an improved clarity. The first grade gem that reaches the user is clear or almost clear. The brilliance of this stone is compared only with that of diamond and sometimes it is said that it has brilliance better than that of diamond.

The user needs to check for the pureness of the diamond by considering various factors such as the cut of the stone, their brilliance and double effects and other similar qualities. But in the case of amora the user need not worry about these checking process as it is made in laboratory and does not loses its brilliance all over the life. The gem also scatters the plain light in the seven colors and produces a prism without any single error.
