The debate over whether moissanite are more precious than diamonds really has little reason. Although there are remarkable points of similarity, the comparison clearly than between apples and oranges – both are valuable, but very different fruit.
If you choose a diamond or moissanite is actually a matter of individual choice.

By the same money, is a much less valuable investment means that the market value and resale is obviously smaller. It 's really depends on your motivation behind the purchase.

Viewed at a distance from the naked eye under the light of a flashlight, a> Moissanite is the light that is typical for its double refraction. This is reflected in a rainbow pattern that is absent in diamonds.
Another point of reference for distinguishing the two is the presence of small tube-like inclusions under magnification, moissanite would mean that the stone is under investigation.
Probably the most important difference between diamonds and moissanite, is that industrial applications. Diamond has aLegendary value as anvil material 'that moissanite apparently does not share because of its inherent elasticity in extreme temperatures. The strength of moissanite is apparently unstable at temperatures above 400 degrees and is quite unreliable at temperatures up to 1000 degrees. Moissanite is the so called "shear stress" property.
It 'possible that moissanite will match diamond industry value after further development and refinementin manufacturing, but at this stage the rules for the harshness of industrial-grade diamond.
