Does Moissanite hold its value?
@SpecialSundae: Yes, natural Moissanite was found in a meteor in such small amounts that it couldnt be made into anything substantial, so scientists found a way to lab create it. I’m not sure what you mean by rarity value, as diamonds are also not rare. They also do not hold value as nerdface said.15 Nov 2011

Are Moissanite diamonds real?
Indeed, so rare is moissanite, that all of the moissanite produced today are synthetic. Visibly, it is very similar to a natural diamond but, chemically, it is very different. Diamonds comes from carbon and moissanite comes from silicon carbide. The name moissanite is only given to naturally occurring silicon carbide.17 Jan 2018
