History

Carbourundum was created from a failed experiment. In 1890, inventor Edward Goodrich Acheson tried to create diamonds using electricity, which resulted in silicone carbide, a product with shiny rainbow specks through it. It became a popular product in the industrial industry, especially for abrasives, before it was a part of the crystal world. Its striking appearance and shiny rainbows soon drew people in and it started to become more and more common in crystal stores all over the world. 

Geology

Carborundum is a man made mineral, it can occur naturally as moissanite but it is extremely rare and microscopic. It is a hard chemical compound consisting of silicone and carbon. It is sand + carbon super heated and as it cools the crystals form.
