I think it’s pronounced moy-sa-night? Lol! I butchered the spelling, didn’t know how else to show you.

moy-san- ite. That’s how it sounds to me. But I really hate the name, honestly. It sounds gross. I wish it had a nicer name because I love it haha!

I pronounce it moy-sa-night, but check out this comercial from charles and colvard. Their pronounciation is different. Sounds almost italian lol

it sounds to me like the lady doing voice over is pronouncing it mwah-sa-nat…. I wonder if the C&C website has a pronounciation key 😛

I always thought it was moy-sa-night too.  Learn something new everyday.

I say “moy-sa-night”.

p.s. If you say it the French-sounding way with “mwah” at the beginning, it reminds me of the French word for mold.  Not nice!

Lol yes it’s pronounced “moy-sa-night” or “moy-za-night” kind of right between the two depending on your accent. Named after Henry Moissan, who discovered it.

Wow.  The video of the gem flying in space is the original and they use the “French” sounding pronunciation.

I’m down with that.
