Eternity Amora Gem
Before we start our comparison, let´s talk about Amora Gem itselves firstly. What is Amora Gem and how is possible we´v never heart about the gem so far? The amora gem crystal naturally occurs around large stars as stardust, but has never been available on earth until now (2014). The Amora gem crystal only grows in extremely high temperatures that would quickly vaporize diamond. Due to the incredibly high temperatures required for its growth, it is only present on Earth in minute quantities near the Earth’s heated core and its lack of availability is perhaps one reason that diamond became the most prized gem on Earth.
Amora gem has unique properties, which eclipse diamond in almost every measure.
More brilliant than diamond | More fire than diamond
9.5 Hardness | Vertical faceted girdle (64 facets)
100% Conflict Free | Better cutting than 99% of all round diamonds
Eternity Round Amora Gem has 57 facets (just like a H&A diamond)
Popular diamond alternatives
Popular diamond alternatives and their chemical composition: Amora Gem (SiC) / Moissanite (SiC) / Cubic Zirconia (ZrO2)
What are the differences between Amora gem and Moissanite?
The Silicon Carbide family contain over 200+ members of various types of crystal with different internal composition and properties. Amora gem is not a Moissanite, but new kind of crystal and is optically superior to the crystal structure of Moissanite. Amora has better color, more brilliance (higher refractive index) and is harder than moissanite. For example, if you compare diamond and graphite, both are crystals of carbon, but have quite different properties.
The brillance or sparkless is why people love the gems, isn´t it so?
Refractive Index: As light passes from air into a material it is bent or refracted. The Refractive Index is a measure of the amount that light is bent.

„Amora Gem is the most brilliant gem on the planet“
Fire is a very important part of the gem´s beauty, but on the other side, too much fire does not look natural.
Dispersion: Describes the way a diamond breaks up a ray of white light into its component colors.
Amora Gem: 0.104 + 200% more fire than diamond
Cubic Zirconia: 0.058–0.066
Our view: Amora Gem looks like the best diamonds and that is why we call Amora „diamond on steroids“ while
Moissanite has a more „warm“ color fire, which may or may not be prefered by customers.
HARDNESS vs. TOUGHNESS
Diamond: 10 (the highest hardness mineral on the planet)
Amora Gem: 9.25 – 9.5 (can be damaged only by diamond or materials harder than 9.2) Amora due to its incredible hardness does not need warranty.
Moissanite: 9.25 (moissanite is about 120x harder gem than CZ)
Cubic Zirconia: 8 – 8.5
Did you know, that HARDNESS is not the same as TOUGHNESS?
Yes, diamond is the hardest mineral on the planet, but you will maybe be surprised, not toughness.
In fact, Amora gem and Moissanite are tougher when compared to diamond. How is it possible? Nature diamond contains lot of inner inclusions like cleavage, fractures, feathers etc. Lab-grow gems like Amora gem, do not have natural dirt and that is why they are tougher than diamond. What does it all mean? If you put dimond and Amora or moissanite on the floor, diamond will propably break first, as its even if harder.
Eternity Amora Gem
Each Amora gem come throught the same grading report as diamond do and customer get own certificate made by NAGL laboratory with important details about gem´s properties like measurement, color, clarity, cut etc.

Is not offered.
Price, propably the biggest reason why we are looking for diamond alternative. We love Jewellery, big size gem with incredibly brillance, fire and hardness, but dont want ruin our founds. Amora is not in a investment, but does not costs thousands of dollars like diamond with the same properties, see below. Which one do you prefer to wear everyday in your Jewellery?
