    Morganite is in the Beryl (BARE-ul) mineral species. The public was just beginning to gain awareness of this soft pink stone named after J.P. Morgan (Morganite) but is now gaining recognition by a new name "Pink Emerald". This reddish Orange through slightly purplish Red gem is truly rare, especially in the larger sizes with good color. In reality, green emerald is not rare, diamond is anything but rare, since everyone in the world has one, regardless of their income level, but Morganite is very rare.  Gem dealers in the know have one tucked away because they've always thought it would be an important gemstone.  Pink Emerald is finally receiving the appreciation and price level it deserves.  Pink Emerald prices are now at around $450 per carat for some of the smaller stones (<3 carats) in lighter colors, and range to upwards of $10,000 per carat for large stones with rich color.  Some dealers see Morganite as easily being $10,000 to $30,000 per carat in the very near future.  Morganite, or Pink Emeralds are following the lead taken in 1990 when  red beryl, or bixbite, was being sold and marketed as Red Emerald.  Red Emerald and Pink Emerald are both beryllium aluminum silicates colored by manganese and chromium, among other things.  These precious gems are extremely desirable and beautiful.  As with most gems, the larger the Pink Emerald the more it's cost per carat, and the more saturated the color, the higher the price of the gemstone. A clean and well cut Pink Emerald (Morganite) with moderate to moderately strong pastel pink color is definitely a winner, a gem you'd be proud to own, but to maintain it properly, make sure you clean it often, following the instructions below. Morganite is one of my personal favorites. This is a valued Collectors Gemstone that will continue to gain popularity and increase in value..
    Morganite is not generally heat sensitive, but the pink color could fade if subjected to 1000C or higher.  Chemicals that could attack this gem are hydrofluoric acids.

TREATMENTS - Typically Morganite is not treated or enhanced.
CARE - Jewelry featuring Morganite should not be cleaned in an UltraSonic Cleaner, or a steamer. We recommend Ionic Cleaners and/or warm, soapy water and a soft brush as the best way to clean this gemstone jewelry.
