About Smokey Grey Moissanite

Grey moissanite presents a rare variation of the gemstone known as moissanite! Moissanite was initially discovered in 1893 by French chemist Henri Moissan within tiny crystals found in a meteor crater. These crystals were later identified as silicon carbide and named moissanite.

Naturally occurring grey moissanite is scarce and found in limited locations globally, notably in India and Brazil. However, the availability of lab-grown versions of comparable quality has increased, offering a more sustainable and ethically sourced alternative.

Grey moissanite exhibits a spectrum of hues, ranging from off-white to silver grey. While moissanite stones typically reflect the colors of the gems they were cut from, some may display unique shades of grey.

For individuals seeking alternatives to diamonds and other traditional gemstones without entirely departing from this category, moissanite emerges as an exceptional choice.

Considered a rare and precious gemstone, grey moissanite commands a higher price due to its natural rarity. Initially costly to mine and collect, its value has significantly appreciated in recent years.
