Morganite is a semi-precious gemstone with an unique peachy pink tone. You may know more about members of its family such as aquamarines and emeralds, all part of the beryls family.
A LITTLE HISTORY
In 1911, a transparent gem discovered on the African island of Madagascar was hailed as an exciting new alternative to kunzite and pink tourmaline. The rose pink to lilac gem was named in honor of wealthy banker and gem connoisseur John Pierpont Morgan. Morgan was an avid customer of Tiffany's, and the jewelry store enthusiastically promoted the gem. Eventually, Madagascar's morganite deposits declined and Brazil vecame the gem's top producer. Although the gem's finest color is a deep magenta, most morganites on the market are a pale pink., Manhy Brazilian morganites emerge from the mines sporting an attractive peach (orange pink) hue that's appealing to some buyers. But producers ususally heat treat gems of this hue to arrive at a pink and peachy pink shade that's preffered in the marketplace.
MORGANITE JEWELRY QUALITY FACTOR
Although morganite is rarer than aquamarine, large cut stones are readily available on today’s market. That’s probably because morganite hasn’t been promoted to the jewelry-buying public nearly as widely as aquamarine or emerald. With a hardness of 71/2 to 8 on Mohs scale, Morganite stands right under currundums such as sapphires, and with its toughness graded as good, makes Morganites a great choice for jewelry makers.
A few important factors when selecting Morganites for jewelry:
