This is a custom cut dichroic moissanite, specifically designed to separate the yellow and blue colors and maximize dichroism.  It weighs in at 8.9ct and measuring 16.4x10.2mm.

This is dichroic moissanite also known as silicon carbide in industry. It is an excellent gem, with incredible hardness (around 9.25-9.5) and greater brilliance and fire than a diamond. It is perfect for use in all kinds of jewelry.

Though it is well known in the gem world it is also highly valued in the world of science and industry. It is a semiconductor just like pure silicon but far more durable and heat-resistant, so it is used to make computer chips that need to endure high stress environments like in a car engine. Fortunately for us these uses require very exacting standards and sometimes crystals are rejected, in particular ones with nitrogen contamination which usually makes them opaque or heavily included, but occasionally yields an incredibly beautiful blue/yellow dichroic color.
