Colored Moissanite

I really love this ring

What is Moissanite ?

Moissanite /ˈmɔɪsənt/[4] originally referred to a rare mineral discovered by Henri Moissan having a chemical formula SiC and various crystalline polymorphs. Earlier, this material had been synthesized in the laboratory and named silicon carbide (SiC)..

Mineral moissanite was discovered by Henri Moissan while examining rock samples from a meteor crater located in Canyon DiabloArizona, in 1893. At first, he mistakenly identified the crystals as diamonds, but in 1904 he identified the crystals as silicon carbide.[5][6] The mineral form of silicon carbide was named moissanite in honor of Moissan later on in his life. The discovery in the Canyon Diablo meteorite and other places was challenged for a long time as carborundum contamination from human abrasive tools.[7]
