Moissanite does occur as a natural mineral, but it is extremely rare and is found in tiny quantities, mainly in meteorites. By chemical composition it is silicon carbide. Silicon carbide was first synthesized by Jons Jacob Berzelius (1779-1848), a Swedish chemist, who is best known for his discovery of silicon. All of the moissanite currently sold in the market is synthetic.
As a diamond simulant, moisaanite is superior to cubic zirconia in two ways. First, moissanite's hardness (8.5 to 9.25 on the Mohs scale) is closer to diamond; CZ by comparison is 8 to 8.5. This difference in hardness affects not only durability, but also moissanite's appearance -- a cut moissanite has facets that are nearly as crisp as those on a diamond.
Second, moissanite's density more closely approximates diamond. Moissanite has a specific gravity of 3.2, fairly close to diamond (3.5 to 3.53). Cubic zirconia, by contrast, is extremely dense with a specific gravity of 5.6 to 6. So a 1 carat CZ is much smaller than a 1 carat diamond.
