Morganite

Part of the Beryl gem family (also featuring Emerald and Aquamarine), Morganite has a distinct fine Pink range of tones. Long known just as Pink Beryl, the gem was renamed ‘Morganite’ in 1911 after one of the world’s more prominent gem collectors at the time, Mr JP Morgan of banking notoriety.

A point worth noting is that most Morganite’s need to be large in size for their color to be emphasized, that is why Blossomjewels tends to opt for using Morganite as a large centre stone as opposed to alternate pink gem material varieties that may be better suited for use in smaller sizes due to their strength of color eg Pink Tourmaline.

Morganite is thought to convey the mythical trait of ‘calm and relaxed’.

 

 

The Pink in Morganite comes from the presence of Manganese in its chemical composition.

Important locations from which Morganite is sourced include Afghanistan, Brazil, China, Madagascar , Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe and the United States. Blossomjewels typically sources its Morganitee from Brazil, China or Madagascar.

Morganite is reasonably hard with a Mohs’ rating in the range of 7.5 to 8/10, so it is well suited for everyday wear.
