Black Moissanite, the Affordable Alternative of Black Diamond

Moissanite stones have been around for decades now, presenting to the buyers’ most favorable alternatives to diamonds. Practically indistinguishable from real stones, moissanites are the perfect synthetic lookalikes of real diamonds.

Are They Natural?

That’s a good question to ask. Moissanites are originally natural stones first mined in Canyon Diablo in 1893. The doctor who found it at first mistook it for a diamond. Further investigation revealed that it wasn’t a diamond, but a mineral that is similar to it. Optically similar, black Moissanite is different than a natural black diamond in more than just one way.

But Moissanites are very rare in nature. Driven by their scarcity, Moissanites today are engineered in laboratories. The manmade ones too are close visually and compositionally to original diamonds.

The USPs of Black Moissanites

On the heels of black diamonds, black Moissanites entered the market giving people the option to get the similar looking stones for less. What else did they come to offer? The assurance of a perfection that natural born stones cannot deliver.

Black diamonds, depending on their 4Cs are gray to brown in color, but not Moissanites. Black Moissanites are black as the night, like the top-graded black diamonds are.

But what about price? Are black Moissanites as expensive as top of the line black diamonds? Definitely not. Black Moissanites are infinitely cheaper than real diamonds, so much so that for the price of one black diamond, you can buy more than one black Moissanite.

Compared to Black Diamonds

Black Moissanites are more practical choices compared to diamonds. They have a 9.25 score on Mohs scale which makes them near as hard as diamond which has a score of 10. Unlike diamond’s brilliance, these stones display a rainbow flash which is beloved by buyers.
