they accepted the return and the money is being refunded back to me, but no one ever responded about if the coloration in my ring really WAS off.
I just need to let it go, but if i had a bad stone I will reorder (but not from moissanite co.) because I really want a sparkly ass moissy- just not a green one in the car…
so now…do I re-order and decide when I see it again?

Might be worth a shot. Worst case scenario, you still don’t like it– but at least you know. It could have been a dud (in which case a new one should fix it) or you may be super color sensitive (in which case moissy may not be what you are looking for if you want super white).

@mcklough: I believe all moissanite suppliers get their products from Charles and Colvard so they would all be technically coming from the same place. Its up to you. Odds are your new stone wont be colorless. I would go with a different stone, maybe Amora if you want the stone to be completely colorless since the slight yellow does bother you. From personal experience, when I first got my moissanite I thought it may have had a tinge of yellow despite being enhanced. Now I dont notice or care. For me, a slightly yellow stone was not a deal breaker, as most diamonds arent colorless either.

I’m so sorry you had that experience! That really is very green, which I find really strange since I have an unenhanced moissanite that has never shown color like that. I’m tempted to ask about your car window tint level or if you were wearing a green shirt, not because I don’t believe you but just because of how green it is. Maybe you could try ordering a loose stone to see how it looks without as much risk?

my car window does not have a tint (just your standard kia windows) and I was wearing black….
I would like to hear from more moissy owners if that is common… as I mentioned it was like twice as bad in overcast lighting, but i don’t have a picture of that

Wow this is an old thread.. I’m just wondering did you re-order a different moissy or did you go a different route? I’ve heard that the more recent circulating batch of Amoras were more yellow/green than they should be (can’t confirm IRL). I have a FB enhanced stone and it doesn’t look like yours; however, my friend has an unenhanced stone and it is pretty similar in color to the one you have pictured.
What I can say is that the lattice spacing or the spacing between the Si-C bonds for a moissanite is around 3.01 angstroms. Anything above 5.4 angstroms is considered near colorless, or is like a D-F color graded diamond. Because of this, all moissy, even treated will have some intrinsic color. It’s more likely that moissy will absorb colors in the blue/purple spectrum and reflect back green/yellow. Is there any chance that your car interior is a light gray? Do you have a blue cell phone case?
