Moissanite weight vs Diamond Equivalent Weight?
I know that moissanite is slightly less dense than diamond, and therefore weighs less than the diamond equivalent of the same size.

According to moissaniteco a 6.5mm RB moissy weighs 0.88ct, but is the same measurement of a 1ct diamond equivalent.

Just out of interest, as I see moissanite as a gemstone in it's own right, I was wondering if anyone had a chart with moissanite shape, measurement and true moissanite weight (rather than diamond equivalent weight).

I am most interested in RB, OEC and rose cuts if anyone has the information or knows where I can find it.

hmmm, I have not seen a chart like that before I don't think. The C&C website used to have a lot more charts on their site though. Now it all seems sales related.

We had a similar thread about this awhile back, but I can't seem to locate it. I believe the weights listed on C&C's store, moissanite.com, are the actual weights for the specific size/cut.

I found a chart here. http://www.shootingstargems.com/Moissani...Chart.html
