Why is moissanite lab created?

Moissanite mineral is incredibly rare to find in nature, so the majority of moissanite used to grow gem-quality-stones is laboratory-created. Because the material used to create the gemstone is synthetic, moissanite is considered a “Lab grown silicon carbide gemstone,” whereas other lab gemstones are grown using the same materials and environmental conditions found in nature. All Gemvara lab gemstones, including lab Diamond and moissanite, are by nature, conflict-free. Learn more about our lab and mined gemstones at our Gemstone Library.
