(silicon carbide) is not naturally found on Earth, except as tiny grains in some meteorites.
However, it is a bi-product of steel production, and the raw material (known as carborundum) has been used for decades as an abbrasive and for cutting tools.
In the pure state (as grown in the lab) it is nearly transparent and similar to diamond in many respects.
Moissanite is a high-quality diamond substitute, as it offers extreme beauty, fire, hardness and durability. The crystals do tend to have a
slight greenish cast, and Moissanite is doubly-refracting - the easiest way to distinguish it from diamond.
