Moissanite is a substitute for diamonds. Apparently, one cannot easily make a difference between Diamonds and Moissanite because of their resemblance in appearance. Moissanite is named after Henry Moissan who discovered this mineral back in 1893 out of the crater created by a meteorite. Because of covalent bonding between atoms, moissanite is as hard as a diamond. Unlike diamond, which is a product of carbon, moissanite is a crystal of silicon carbide and is now replacing diamonds at a rapid pace.
