How Black Moissanite Is Made 

Unlike some simulants like cubic zirconia, black moissanite is not man-made. rather, it's grown in a lab or found naturally. While white/ colorless moissanite can occur without treatment, usually CVD (chemical vapor) must be applied to achieve the desired color in colored moissanite. However, this still makes it a genuine gemstone. The most common variety of black moissanite is pure black, but others include rainbow black and those with blue undertones.
