Where Does Moissanite Come From?

A special relationship deserves a special gemstone, nearly all moissanite today is lab grown.

Moissanite is naturally occurring and rarer than diamonds, but only occurs in very small quantities. First discovered in Arizona, United States by acclaimed Nobel prize winner doctor Henri Moissan in 1893. It wasn't until over a hundred years later when scientists successfully recreated an innovative moissanite laboratory growing process, and shortly after Charles and Colvard produced the first commercial quality lab grown moissanite gemstones.

Charles & Colvard skilled laboratory technicians recreate the natural conditions and pressures needed for moissanite to form naturally to create a physically identical gemstone to that of a naturally occurring moissanite.

It takes up to three months for a skilled specialist to meticulously create a single gem, post production each stone undergoes a stringent process for testing of quality, cut and purity before being shipped to our workshop for setting.

Nearly all moissanite stones are lab grown under strict conditions. We are proud to support the ethical trade of precious metals and gemstones, Lily Arkwright believes all gemstones should be mined sustainably and without conflict.
