What is a moissanite diamond is it real?

Moissanite is silicon carbide that was first discovered in nature as a mineral attached to a meteorite in Diablo Canyon

Arizona by French chemist Henri Moissan in 1893.Moissanite is incredibly rare in nature

so today nearly all of it is synthesized in laboratories. A moissanite ring is real and it's its own gemstone not a diamond substitution.
