Comparing Quorri DymondIX® to a Mined Diamond
Comparing Quorri DymondIX® to a Mined Diamond When looking at a Quorri DymondIX and a mined diamond side by side, the first and most obvious difference is that there is no difference at all!
Superbly hand-cut and polished, the exquisite Quorri DymondIX® is virtually identical to a mined stone to the naked eye. Plus, thanks to our revolutionary TiO2 Optical and protective SP3 Carbon Layers, even highly skilled jewellers can’t tell the difference just by looking.
Quorri DymondIX® is so optically close to a diamond that without magnification, it’s impossible to tell them apart. Below is a side-by-side comparison, showing an $18,000 1.00 carat Round, E colour, VVS1 clarity mined diamond next to a Quorri DymondIX. As you can see, the similarities are stunning.

The Quorri DymondIX is on the Left. Even jewelers had a difficult time distinguishing the two.
A gem’s hardness is measured according to the Mohs scale, where it will achieve a rating somewhere between 1 (the softest) and 10 (the hardest). As expected, diamonds are a 10 on this scale. Rubies and sapphires each rate a 9, and Cubic Zirconia is an 8. Quorri DymondIX, rates an impressive 9.1 Mohs overall)
Brilliance – or sparkle – is compared using a Refractive Index, which measures how much slower the speed of light becomes when it passes through the gemstone. The higher a stone’s Refractive Index, the more light it reflects from its surface. A mined diamond typically has a refractive index of 2.42. A Quorri DymondIX, in contrast, rates even higher, at 2.46.
What we perceive as a glittering rainbow of colour emitting from a stone is called dispersion. This is what gives a gem its fire and brilliance. A mined diamond has a dispersive power of 0.044. The Quorri DymondIX’s power is almost identical – 0.046.
Clearly, the beauty of a Quorri DymondIX®
with its diamond-like qualities and attainable price point makes it truly a brilliant alternative – so why pay thousands more?
