Moissanite -vs- Diamond

Dr. Moissan, a French chemist, discovered a meteorite in the Diablo Canyon in 1893. It was made up of a rare mineral with almost identical properties of a diamond. Charles & Colvard TM has lab created this jewel. It is extremely more affordable compared to the cost of fine diamonds.

Moissanite have very slight inclusions, not seen by the naked eye, and colors are slightly tinted to near colorless. Equivalent to a VVS1 H-I color of a Diamond.
