"I really feel like I won the lottery with this stone. It is just so pretty!

I can't believe it is mine and that moissanite has come this far.."

Note: Due to a trademark conflict, we have changed the product brand from Mira to Amora Moissanite..there may be some cross-references while we change over  but the underlying product remains the same.

When nothing but the most brilliant round (~9% more brilliant than diamond) can exemplify your love, then look no further than Amora Moissanite.

Amora Moissanite is the first true "H color" Moissanite available anywhere (becomes I after 8.5mm - 9mm).  We back that claim with independent color grading and certification for *every* Amora 6.5mm and larger.

Raw moissanite (what is sold everywhere now as "moissanite") is K color (per GIA, K color is 'faint color') or worse for 7mm and higher.  

If anyone claims differently, ask them why they don't offer an independent grading report for their supposedly 'near colorless' moissanite..

Amora is created by the following process:

1 - Raw moissanite rounds from Charles and Colvard are filtered to ensure no excessive green tint or poor cutting (this results in 20 - 50% being rejected)

2 - Raw moissanite is then transformed, using a multi-patent applications in the works process, to substantially improve, at the atomic level, the color of the Moissanite.  

The improvements permanently transform it into a more perfect Moissanite (perfect Moissanite is colorless for reference) and thus create a Amora.  This transformation is somewhat analagous to HPHT when done for diamond (turns brown diamonds clear), and the visual improvement can be startling - 7mm and larger Moissanite's go from K/L color to H color (faint color to true near-colorless). 

4 - The Amora undergoes a final independent inspection at a diamond grading lab to prove its final color grade (try getting that for any raw moissanite) and recieve its laser engraving marking it as a true Amora Moissanite.  

Amora is offered for sale exclusively at BetterThanDiamond.com and in the future, MoissaniteCo.com.  All Amora ship with laser engraving, and sizes over 6.5mm with an independent grading report.

Amora Moissanite - BetterThanDiamond.com

Amora™ Moissanite is independently graded at an average of four color grades whiter than regular Moissanite by Charles & Colvard, and is the worlds first 'true' near colorless moissanite. Having a jeweller in the family he was shocked at the beauty of this stone and could not believe it was a Moissanite.. By comparison, regular Moissanite is typically K color for 7mm+ rounds, and M-N color for Cushion cuts 7mm+.
