About Fancy Color Moissanite Stones

Every moissanite available in jewelry is cultivated in laboratories. The natural occurrence of moissanite is exceptionally scarce, mainly found in minute amounts within meteorites. The moissanite utilized for jewelry production is synthesized using either chemical vapor deposition (CVD) or the high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) techniques. These are the same laboratory techniques that produce lab created diamonds and other lab gemstones including lab created; sapphire, emeralds and ruby stones. 

Fancy colored moissanite is considered a synthetic gem which is crafted from silicon carbide crystals, predominantly through laboratory synthesis. Its hue is imbued via a technique termed "doping," wherein impurities are introduced into the crystal lattice of silicon carbide during fabrication. The specific impurities and their concentrations dictate the ultimate coloration of the moissanite. For instance, trace amounts of nitrogen yield yellow or green hues, whereas boron infusion results in blue tones.

The rising popularity of fancy colored moissanite is attributed to its captivating spectrum, spanning from delicate greens to profound blues. This extensive range offers a plethora of choices to suit any occasion or style inclination. Moissanite is celebrated for its stunning array of hues, encompassing frosty whites, radiant yellows, and vivid reds and blues.
