There are two things that are called amora.

1. Amora enhanced moissanite. This is Charles and Colvard moissanite that has been heated to appear whiter. This was previously and briefly called Mira, but changed due to copyright issues. Mira = Amora ENHANCED moissanite.

2. Amora gem. This is a silicon carbide gem (similar to what we know as moissanite, but with a different chemical structure.) It is currenly in research and production by BTD. The first cut they will be offereing will be a Hearts and Arrows cut, eventually expanding into many other cuts. It will not be available until 2012 – 2015, as they are dealing with patent issues.

Hope this helps. It’s pretty confusing.

Mira or Amora are the same thing.  It is C&C moissanite, treated with HPHT to whiten the stone at the atomic level.  The cuts are all C&C.

Amora Gem is a totally new moissanite crystal developed by BTD.  The actual gen rough is F colour and it will be cut by BTD into ideal diamond cuts, like H&A.

@moonadea: Super helpful information. Thank you!

Do you know if the Amora gem will be available from moissaniateco.com once it can be sold in North America?
