CLASSIFICATION: Man-made stone
A nano crystal is an entirely man-made invention and does not exist in nature.
The name refers to its crystallised structure and it is often referred to as nano crystal because it contains nanometer-sized particles of oxides and silicates. Pandora’s product code for synthetic crystal is ‘N’.
Scoring 8.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness and with solid toughness, cubic zirconia is highly durable and suitable for use on all types of jewellery.
Avoid rough handling when not in use. Store items of jewellery separately to avoid scratches. Clean with warm, soapy water and gentle brushing. Ultrasonic cleaners should be used with caution.
