Moissanite is a synthetic silicon carbide gemstone that, like diamonds, has a single crystal structure and will not fade because it is worn for too long. This gemstone is second only to diamond in hardness, so other substances do not leave traces on its surface. The properties of Moissanite are very similar to diamonds, so it can be worn for a long time like diamonds and will not change color easily.
As a kind of artificial gemstone, Moissanite has very high antioxidant properties. During its manufacturing process, different technologies and materials can be used to make it show different colors, such as yellow, green, blue, and so on. These colors are carefully selected and treated and will not fade over time.
However, it should be noted that Moissanite has a certain lipophilicity. After wearing it for a long time, the oil secreted by the skin and the oil smoke in the kitchen may adhere to the gem’s surface, which impacts its color. This situation is not Moissanite’s problem but the external environment’s influence.
To maintain the beauty and luster of Moissanite, we should clean and keep it regularly. First, the Moissanite can be cleaned using mild, soapy water or a gem-cleaning solution. Gently scrub the gem’s surface with a soft brush, then rinse with clean water. Secondly, before wearing it, you should avoid using cosmetics, perfume, and other items containing chemical ingredients to avoid an unnecessary impact on the Moissanite.
In general, Moissanite, as a synthetic gemstone, has similar hardness and durability compared to diamonds. It will not fade due to the passage of time, but it may be affected by the external environment after wearing it for a long time, especially the attachment of grease. Therefore, the correct cleaning and maintenance methods are essential to maintain the beauty and luster of Moissanite. As long as we do an excellent job of daily maintenance, Moissanite can still retain its unique color and charm.
