African Morganite – Light Pink – Pear – 1.95 Carats

$ 1,300.00

A pink raindrop… was never heard of but the concept was there. And this concept was a reality when we had found this morganite in our mines situated in Africa. The long shape of the rough crystal instantly gave our master lapidarists the idea to fashion this beauty into a pear shape. The stone has the dimensions of 6.21mm by 12.07mm as well as a pavilion depth of 4.95mm, giving it a decent carat size of approximately 1.95 carats. This stone is guaranteed to be eye clean and is completely natural not having undergone any treatment. The light pink shade of this morganite absolutely shines in the sunlight not only due to the evenness in colour but also because of the modified flower cut which it has on its pavilion.

Overall this stone is the perfect match for a pendant or a ring, to be worn on a special occasion. The gemstone will wear the jewellery in pride and serenity and will certainly stun the onlooker.

The Morganite

THE DISCOVERY
Morganite was founded and named by the world-famous gemologist George Frederick Kunz in honour of his good friend and avid gemstone collector, J. Pierpont Morgan. Popularly, Morgan was the founder of the now Financial Partnership Company J.P.Morgan Chase. As Kunz was undergoing an expedition in Madagascar in 1910, he discovered the rose-pink stone. His previous discovery of kunzite in 1902 came into his mind, due to the similarity of colour.

However, by using his skills as a gemologist, his discernment that this new stone is miles apart from his prior discovery was accurate. In terms of crystal systems, Morganite is hexagonal, having a uniaxial refractive index, dichroic colour and double refraction. Kunzite, in comparison, is monoclinic with a biaxial refractive index, trichroic in colour and has double refraction. Furthermore, unlike Kunzite, Morganite did not fade in colour when exposed to sunlight, making it a practical gemstone donning contemporary pieces of jewellery.

THE COLOURS OF MORGANITE
Despite the common misconception that the Morganite comes in only a pink colour, the stone has two dualities. The first of is the traditional light pink, the second a mixture of light pink and light orange. The cause of colour being the Mn2+ ion. This, therefore, means that the more Manganese ions there is the more light pink in colour the stone is. Consequently, In reverse fashion, the less it is, the more of an orange tinge the stone possesses. A historical example is the “Rose of Maine”, a 30cm full piece of gem-quality Morganite…
