Morganite is a variety of beryl that has a delicate pink color. Morganites, aquamarines, heliodors, and emeralds, are the same mineral, beryl, and are actively used in jewelry. It's a relatively hard gemstone, with a Mohs hardness rating of 7.5 to 8, which makes it suitable for everyday wear.
The stone got its name in the early 20th century after George Koontz, the leading jewelry house Tiffany & Co. gemologist, named it after the famous philanthropist and banker from the United States, John Morgan. Russian experts sometimes use the name "Vorobyovite," given after the Russian geologist and scientist V.I. Vorobyov.
Natural morganite is more characteristic, not bright pink, but a pleasant peach hue, giving it lithium, cesium, and manganese impurities. The increased content of these metals determines a higher coefficient of density than that of other representatives of the beryl family. Other parameters of morganites are identical to those of beryls.
The price of morganite can vary widely depending on the quality of the stone, including its color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. Prices per carat typically range from $100 to $300 for high-quality stones, making it a relatively affordable option compared to other gemstones.
Morganites with rich pink coloring are rare. Some pieces of mined stones reach a significant size and perfect clarity. After cutting the morganites, there are practically no cracks or inclusions. It is worth mentioning that big pristine morganites are relatively inexpensive in the jewelry market.
The natural coloring considerably affects the gemstone's grade. Samples with natural pink coloring without orange hues belong to the most expensive price category. Intense color saturation increases the price of morganites. Much cheaper are the crystals of orange-brown coloring and light tonality.
Most of the jewelry morganites come from Brazilian deposits. The first samples of deep pink colored stones were found in California. The excellent morganites from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais are marked by excellent transparency and a light pink color without brown or orange hues. Brazilian morganites are valued by jewelers very highly, sometimes higher than aquamarines.
However, current trends in jewelry fashion dictate their own rules. Over the past year, for example, peach hue came into vogue, and the price of peach morganites increased significantly. On the jewelry market, finding nice examples of stones of big weight and good clarity is easy. It is worth mentioning that the presence of small impurities that give an effect of inner "silk" shine dramatically increases the price of the stones.
Specialists use heat treatment for the morganites to get a better color. The most commonly used methods are heat treatment and irradiation. The results of ennoblement are notable for their stability. This method of ennoblement does not influence the price of the stone.
The popularity of jewelry adorned with morganites has come relatively recently. It isn't easy to find such jewelry in the showcases of Russian jewelry stores. You can order them from private jewelers. Jewelry with morganites in light pink shades of cool colors is usually made of white gold or platinum. In the collections of the leading jewelry companies, there are more and more pieces of jewelry with these wonderful stones. This, of course, makes morganite more in demand, which leads to a constant rise in prices on the world market.
Designers of famous jewelry houses have a fantastic approach to creating rings, earrings, and pendants with morganite based on natural motifs. Cartier craftsmen created a wonderful brooch with incomparable pink flamingos made of morganite, frozen in the middle of water space.
Dior designers released a collection of earrings and rings decorated with light pink pear-shaped morganites. Graceful stones are surrounded by a scattering of gold twigs and diamond scrolls made on nature's motives. The compositions of massive morganites with figurines of birds and butterflies resting against a background of dormant flowers are astonishing.
