It's really not hype - it's true. Only a jeweler is capable of detecting the difference between a moissanite stone and a natural diamond!
Moissanite is an extremely rare stone which was first discovered by Dr. Henri Moissan in a meteor crater in 1893. It was later re-created and now perfected for use in jewelry. With a refractive index of 2.65-2.69, moissanite exhibits more brilliance than diamond. And thanks to a dispersion that’s 2.4 times higher than diamond, moissanite bends light into mesmerizing rainbow flashes of fire over two times more than diamond, ruby, emerald or sapphire. Moissanite is also extremely durable with a hardness of 9.25 on the Mohs Scale (diamond is rated 10, ruby and sapphire is rated 9, emerald is rated 7.5 - see chart below). (Source: Charles & Colvard)
