Astral: “relating to, proceeding from, consisting of, or resembling the stars"
Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral composed of silicon carbide (SiC) and was first discovered in 1893 by French Chemist, Henri Moissan at the site of a meteorite. The crystals were first mistaken for diamonds, but it was later determined to be an entirely different material all together. This spectacular new gem was named “Moissanite” in his honour.
Due to its rarity in nature, scientists developed an innovative thermal growing process to create these silicon carbide crystals. The result is a gemstone that rivals any natural mineral for Fire, Brilliance and quality.
