Dear All

Hope these is someone out there to help me with this
I like cutting Moissanite and I was told they change color during or after cutting
I am wondering if any one has expertinence cutting Moissanite in here to respond what you have done in order to get back the actual color ? Is this costly process and if not what have you achieved with the heating process? Any idea about the heating process or heating temperature and environment that must be used to heat moissanite ! I will appreciate your time
Maz
Because I could not find any suitable thread to post my question I am going to send it under heating discussions may someone find it and hope have similar work experience
Regards

I know that during repair work with a torch they will turn bright orange and then revert to original color. They are also commonly cast in place, so I assume there is high heat and thermal shock both.
