Cloud Creator Gemstones (Moissanite Pearls) are now available! Moissanite is a remarkable gemstone known for its durability and striking resemblance to diamonds. It is made of silicon carbide (SiC), a compound with several extraordinary properties. Moissanite stands out in the gemstone world due to its remarkable characteristics, particularly related to heat resistance, heat retention, hardness, and vaporization properties.

 

**Heat Resistance:**

Moissanite has excellent heat resistance. It can withstand temperatures reaching approximately 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit (1,480 degrees Celsius). This high level of resistance makes it less likely to crack or experience thermal shock during rapid temperature changes, which is crucial for jewelers who apply high heat during the jewelry setting process.

 

**Heat Retention:**

Due to its crystalline structure, moissanite can retain heat efficiently once it's warmed up. This trait may not particularly affect its wearability in jewelry but does have implications for its applications in technology where stable thermal conductivity is needed.

 

**Hardness:**

On the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, moissanite ranks impressively at around 9.25 to 9.5, just below diamonds, which are the hardest known mineral at 10. This great hardness lends moissanite excellent scratch resistance, contributing to its luster remaining intact over extended periods.

This strength is essential for its use in jewelry, as it can endure daily exposure to materials that might scratch or otherwise damage softer gemstones. Its hardness also makes it suitable for high-pressure experiments and applications in science and technology fields where durable materials are required. This means a piece of moissanite jewelry will have a long-lasting pristine appearance with the proper care.

 

**Vaporization:**

The temperature at which moissanite sublimates into a gas is extraordinarily high, over 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit (2,200 degrees Celsius), a point not normally encountered outside of specialized industrial applications or scientific experiments. Thus, the gemstone is highly unlikely to vaporize under conditions encountered in jewelry use or even during most industrial applications.

 

These properties combined make moissanite an excellent choice for jewelry that retains its beauty with minimal maintenance. Furthermore, the same attributes make it valuable in various industrial contexts, especially where materials are subjected to harsh temperature conditions and where durability and longevity are crucial. Moissanite is not only a popular and enduring choice for jewelry but also a high-performance material for technical, industrial, and dabbing uses.

This is Cloud Creator's favorite gemstone to date and was one of the pioneers to help bring moissanite into the dabbing world.
