Having a higher refractive index than diamond, moissanite is the most brilliant of colorless jewels, due to its double refraction. Moissanite also has a lower specific gravity than diamonds; it is 13% lighter than diamonds by volume. These optical and physical properties translate to a physically larger gem of equivalent weight and clarity. While a 1 carat (200 mg) round brilliant cut diamond is typically 6.5 mm wide when cut to ideal proportions, a one carat moissanite should come out to be about 6.7 mm in diameter.

Moissanite clarity is comparable to diamonds depending on the make-up of the material. As most synthetics have low amounts of foreign material present inside them synthetic diamonds, synthetic cubic zirconium and moissanite all have similar clarity scales. But just like synthetic diamonds, synthetic moissanite, the most common type of moissanite, can have a greenish or yellow tint visible to the naked eye.

Because moissanite and diamonds look similar and have a few similar properties, jewelry stores today market moissanite as a diamond alternative. Sillicon Carbide used in jewelry today is manufactured by multiple companies across the world.
