   2. Moissanite stone will float when placed in specific gravity, and the specific gravity of the diamond will sink;

   3. The Moissanite stone has a ghost image, and there is no ghost image in the diamond body;

   4. Moissanite is a birefringent gemstone, and a diamond is a single-refraction gemstone;
