Learn About Moissanite
Moissanite is regarded as a diamond alternative, with some optical properties exceeding those of diamond. It is marketed as a lower price alternative to diamond that also claims less exploitative mining practices. Because of its hardness 9.25 mohs, it can be used in high-pressure experiments, as a replacement for diamonds.
As the best alternative to natural diamonds:
*Moissanite Hardness/Durability: 9.25 Mohs
*Reaction to Dirt: Resist to dirt
*Refractive Index: 2.65
