Moissanite is one of the rarest naturally occurring minerals found in nature—it was discovered over a century ago at the site of a meteorite strike in Arizona, and has a very similar look to diamonds. Scientists later developed a thermal growing process to create the silicon carbide crystals that make up moissanite in a lab. This process, established by Charles & Colvard, takes two to three months for the creation of a single gem, which is then cut according to specific angles and proportions to help enhance its brilliance.
As we all know, Charles & Colvard patents expired in August 2015 for the United States(in 2016 in most other countries), so now many countries can produce Moissanite rough material for commercial use.
