Mineral moissanite was discovered by Henri Moissan while examining rock samples from a meteor crater located in Canyon Diablo, Arizona, in 1893. At first, he mistakenly identified the crystals as diamonds, but in 1904 he identified the crystals as silicon carbide. Artificial silicon carbide had been synthesized in the lab by Edward G. Acheson just two years prior to Moissan's discovery.
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 man-made abrasive tools. Since then, Moissanite was researched and used in jewelry industry from 1990's when it's found quite brilliant and shiny, as an alternive to expensive mined diamond. Moissanite gained its reputation during the last decade after it went into the fine jewelry industry, with 1/10 the price of same level of natural diamond. In recent years, due to its eco-friendly way of production as well as the romantic concept of it's outspace source, more and more consumers especially the younger generation of bride and grooms, have taken Moissanite into consideration as their first choice of wedding jewelry gemstone.
