M oissanite occurs naturally in space, forming as stardust around big stars. Here on Earth, moissanite is found in crystal form, but the tiny crystals are incredibly rare, much rarer than diamond..
First publicly presented in 1998, moissanite was widely considered to be diamond by many in the gem industry who examined it. Similar to a diamond, the Sirius gems are incredibly high-quality synthetic gems with a bright and dazzling future in the industry.
Sirius gems are not a copy of or substitute for diamonds, instead, they are a unique brilliance with sparkles more dazzling than a diamond. The wonderful combination of art, science and imagination have allowed moissanite to become available in the market.
