Morganite Education


Similar to Emeralds, Morganite comes from the mineral Beryl. The name Morganite comes from the name J.P. Morgan.


If untreated, Morganite has a light orange color. Then, once treated it turns into a lovely light pink/ Salmon color, normally the more intense the color the higher the value.


Faceted morganite gemstones that are smaller usually have no eye-visible inclusions, however the larger the piece of Morganite the more likely of there being inclusions.


Morganite can be cut into a variety of shapes, making it a popular gemstone for many jewelers. A popular cut for light-colored crystals is to be cut a little deep to intensify the color. Stones that have many inclusions are cut as cabochons.


Morganite comes in a variety of sizes, including large faceted gems and designer cuts.
