In the eyes of most people, moissanite is an affordable substitute for diamonds, and its beauty and fashion attract everyone's attention. Moissanite is a kind of synthetic silicon carbide. People are gradually fascinated by moissanite. After all, moissanite and diamond are similar in shape and price is very common, so are there any disadvantages to moissanite? What are the advantages of moissanite compared to diamonds?
Moissanite is a synthetic gemstone originally found in very small quantities of meteorites. Moissanite and diamond have several things in common: they are both colorless and transparent.

Moissanite's fire is 2.5 times that of diamonds. In terms of refractive index, diamonds are 2.42 and moissanite is 2.65. Diamonds are natural and have gone through a long history and witnessed human civilization. Moissanite is man-made, but through various studies, Moissanite fire and refraction are more than diamonds. But diamonds are expensive, and not everyone has the financial ability to spend a lot of money to buy a diamond that will last forever.
