What to look for
The most prized morganite colours are a strong pink to magenta colour, often the result of heat treatment. Untreated material, especially from Brazil, often has a salmon-like orangy pink colour. Morganite’s colour is often light, and more intense colours cause a significant rise in value.
Morganite is cut into a variety of shapes. It is a popular material for cut designers to fashion into unique creations. Morganite is also popular with gemstone carvers. Light-coloured material might be cut slightly deep to help intensify the colour.
