You are awesome! I will say I prefer a diamond over moissininte for an engagement ring for a lot of personal reasons. But I would buy any other jewelry made of this fantastic mineral! A friend of mine has a moissinite engagement ring that I thought for a long time was a diamond until she told me! I could t believe it! Anyway, congrats and can’t wait to see pics!

RockGuy:  I’m glad I’m not the only geologist here!! We had the same conversation about not wanting a diamond. We went with opal, and I’m stoked about it, but had I known about Mossanite (Mineralogy never even mentioned it!) it for sure would have been on my list!

RockGuy:  haha glad you like it so much.  Actually CZ is made out of mineral ingredients too!

It actually looks a little like this silicon carbide used in moissanite! pictures are deceiving, moissanite is crumb sized and zironium is even smaller!

I’m waiting for my moissanite stone, bought one on ebay. Its not the forever brilliant but was cheap (from India!)  Am excited waiting for it!

RockGuy:  aw thanks for taking the time and the info!  Moissanite in its natural color state is so pretty, wish there were moissy stones the way it really looks.Of course it’d still have to have chemical enhancement to make it large enough to set in a ring. 

I think the patent may be up. I found this on google. I wonder if this is where our cheap ebay stones are coming from! http://www.astralite.info/

RockGuy:  

You sound like an expert on moissy! Any chance you were contemplating between that and an amora gem? What’s your opinion on it!? thanks and congrats!
