I wanted to show anyone who is wondering, what oil sick on a moissanite looks like. I removed it using crest white 3d tooth paste and baking soda, then using a tooth brush and dish soap to clean the paste off. I have a Charles and Colvard moissanite and have been noticing the oil slick for about a month now. I have read that wrights silver cream works very well in the stubborn cases, but I wanted to try a home remedy while I was sitting at home here. It worked WHOOP!!! I hope it works for others as well
There is different lighting in these photos but I hope it translates well enough

looks great, but mine gets it back in a week driving me nuts. Thinking of replacing with maybe a sapphire. My ocd being clean is off the wall lol.

It gets the stain back in a week? Have you tried toothpaste and /or a sunshine cloth? I have to say this is why I’m loath to recommend moissanite as an alternative to diamond. It’s so strange that oxidation would cause this phenomenon to occur.
A sapphire is a good choice. There are a lit of colors….some more expensive than others – much more.

yes I have. Even tho my place was just builder where I am renting the water is just so hard plus hand sanitizer. If it didn’t get this stain I be happy 100%. I wish this didn’t happen and feel it’s getting harder and harder to make disappear.

If you contact Charles & Colvard, this might qualify for a warranty replacement. It could just be a dud and exchanging it will be fine or it could have something to do with your water. If you have hard water, I would not let water sit on it and dry naturally. Take it off when washing your hands or in the shower. Try to dry the actual moissanite when it does get wet. See if that makes any difference with keeping it clean.

I’ve heard if you don’t get the oil slick off 100% it comes back pretty fast.
