50 Thousand Years Ago, long after the dinosaurs had vanished, a meteorite crashed into the Arizona Desert creating what is now known as “Meteor Crater”.
Fragments of the Meteorite were scattered across the desert. Hidden in these fragments was a Brilliant Secret waiting to be Discovered.
In 1893, scientist Henri Moissan began studying fragments of meteorite. He discovered minute quantities of shimmering new material with fire and brilliance which was made of silicon carbide. In 1905, this material was named Moissanite, in his honor.
