Yep, a meteor’s crater.  Moissanite is a naturally occurring silicon carbide and in it’s natural form, rivals the rarity of diamonds.

Before the 1950’s there was no other source for these stones other than meteorites (I still can’t get over that). In 1958, moissanite was found the Green River Formation in Wyoming as well as in a diamond mine in Yakutia in 1959.  Forever Brilliant Moissanite is 10% more brilliant than diamonds and reflects 2 times the light of diamonds, emeralds or sapphires!  Not to mention it is nearly colorless, so it often times catches more stares and starts more conversations than diamonds.
