What To Look For
The most prized morganite colors are a strong pink to magenta color, often the result of heat treatment. Untreated material, especially from Brazil, often has a salmon-like orangy pink color. Morganite’s color is often light, and more intense colors cause a significant rise in value.
Faceted morganite often does not have eye-visible inclusions. Larger sizes are more likely to show inclusions. Stones with numerous eye-visible inclusions are carved or cut as cabochons.
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-color material might be cut slightly deep to help intensify the color.
Morganite is found in all sizes and is often cut in calibrated sizes to fit standard jewelry mountings. Large faceted stones are not uncommon.
