Morganite jewelry has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its beautiful sparkle and availability in colors ranging from pale pink to a deep shrimp or salmon shade. At SuperJeweler, we scour the world to find morganites of great beauty from mines in Madagascar, Brazil, Nigeria, and other countries. Morganite is one of the rarest of gemstones, so we are always on the lookout for new sources.
Morganite is a member of the beryl family of minerals, which also includes emeralds and aquamarines. They have a similar level of hardness as emeralds and topaz, so you can wear morganite jewelry daily as long as you protect it from harsh chemicals such as bleach and excessive temperatures. Unlike emeralds and aquamarines, morganite gems have exceptional clarity and few flaws, so they have plenty of sparkle even in larger sizes without visible flaws to detract from the beauty of the stone.
The most popular color for morganite jewelry is a clear, vibrant pink, although the stone comes in colors ranging from a pale, delicate pink to deeper shades of peach and salmon. Due to the rarity of the stone and its impressive range of pastel shades, the stone is currently in high demand. Because it has unusual clarity with few flaws, however, you can get a sizable stone for a relatively low cost compared to similar beryl stones such as emerald. In fact, some people may refer to a morganite necklace as a “pink emerald” necklace, but this is inaccurate. Jewelers will always refer to the morganite by its proper name.
Because morganite was only recently discovered, it is not one of the traditional birthstones based on the birth month. For those who follow the natural calendar, morganite is the natural birthstone of those born between October 22 and November 20. If you don’t care for your traditional birthstone, a morganite ring or morganite necklace can be a gorgeous alternative that better suits your style. In the language of crystals, morganite is considered a healing stone associated with the heart chakra, which influences healing, compassion and the ability to love. It is also believed to enhance the joy and help the wearer find peace. Wearing a morganite necklace may alleviate stress and anxiety.
