50,000 years ago, a meteorite crashed into the earth, scattering fragments of sparkly space particles all over the Arizona desert.
Then in 1893, Dr. Henri Moissan, a Nobel Prize winning scientist, discovered and analyzed the fragments of the meteorite and determined the mineral was made of Silicon Carbide (SiC).
The mineral was later named Moissanite in honour of Dr. Moissan.
Moissanite is extremely rare and is not found naturally occurring on Earth. The small amounts of Moissanite from meteorites are in such small quantities that it cannot be used in jewelry.
Rather than wait for the next meteor to hit planet Earth, a North Carolina company named CREE started growing Moissanite in the lab, and in joint efforts with Charles & Colvard, began cutting Moissanite into gemstones made for jewelry.
