Morganite Gemstones at The Ross Jewelry Company in Atlanta, Georgia.

Morganite is the delicate pink variety of the gemstone beryl.

Coloration
Morganite Atlanta | Pure beryl is colorless, often called white, and although quite rare, tends not to be valuable because it does not have much brilliance. Colors, as in many gemstones, are caused by small amounts of impurity, usually metallic oxides. This is a another case where impurity is desirable. Pink is one of the most desirable colors of beryl, and morganite is quite rare and expensive.

Atlanta Loose Morganite Dealer |  If you're looking for a beautiful Loose Morganite in Atlanta . . . you've found a source like no other.  We often buy our colored gemstones directly from those who mine them. In one case, we took a rough brownish green tanzanite that was brought to us from a mine in Tanzania and cut it into a sparkling oval gem.  Then, through a near miraculous process, we unlocked its magnificent purplish- blue brilliance.  It is unlikely that you will encounter another dealer with more experience or resources in the world of colored gemstones than The Ross Jewelry Company in Buckhead. And . . . that is where these magnificent 18K white gold morganite and diamond earrings below were designed and created.

Durability
Atlanta Morganite | Morganite is quite hard, having a hardness of 7 1/2 to 8 on Moh's scale, compared with 10 for diamond, 9 for corundum, and 8 for topaz. Hardness is generally a desirable feature in gemstones.

Pricing
Morganite in Atlanta | The price range of beryls is very large, ranging from under a few dollars per carat.

Care
Morganite Atlanta | Beryl jewellery can be carefully cleaned using warm soapy water, or detergent, rinse thoroughly afterwards as detergents can cause dermatitis and allergic reactions. Enzyme cleaners should be avoided for the same reasons. Brushing with an old tooth brush to remove dirt and grease will also help. Cleaning agents containing chlorine may have a detrimental effect on low carat gold alloys, so are best avoided.

Reasonable care should be taken when cleaning emeralds, as washing with strong detergents could cause any oil to be diluted or removed, requiring the stone to be re-oiled. Beryls do not like excessive heat, and although they can tolerate temperatures above 100c (the boiling point of water), it is advisable to use warm water rather than hot water, to reduce the dangers of thermal shock.
