This beautiful light peachy-pink morganite hails from Nigeria. Named after J. P. Morgan, Morganite is the peach to pink form of beryl. The color comes from trace amounts of manganese. Most Morganite is irradiated or heated to enhance the color; this gem is completely natural and untreated.
I faceted this gem in a custom square cushion design to highlight the brilliance and color. The gem weighs 4.25 carats and measures 9.4 x 7.1 mm. It would make a beautiful center stone for a ring or pendant.
