Known as the stone of love, compassion, and promise, Morganite is a natural semi-precious pink-colored gemstone from the Beryl mineral family. Due to its bright color shades, Morganite is used as an alternative to Pink Sapphires and Pink Diamonds.
Morganite Crystals can bring compassion, joy, inner strength, confidence and contains unique healing properties. The Morganite Price ranges from INR 3,000 ($ 40) per carat – INR 10,000 ($ 130) per carat and even more depending on the color shades.
Morganite is worn as a calming gemstone that helps the wearer to wash away any negative thoughts, anger, and fear. The factors that affect the Morganite price per carat are its origin, color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. The following factors are explained below –
Origin: Morganite was first discovered in California in 1910, and was initially known as pink Beryl. Today, the mineral deposits of Morganite are found in Brazil, Mozambique, Madagascar, Namibia, Afghanistan, and Russia. Madagascar Pink Morganite and Nigerian Morganite stone prices per carat are usually higher than Morganite from other sources. because of their unique color tone and immense rarity in the market. In contrast, the peach-pink Morganites from Brazil are relatively more affordable and easier to find.
Color: Morganite comes in the color spectrum of pink to peach. Morganite gemstones with pink shades are generally priced a bit higher than peach, but both colors can make a great deal worth your piece. The Morganite value per carat can decrease in the case of gemstones with nearly washed out pink color or dark Morganite pieces. The darker shades of Morganite are often suspected of being treated.
Clarity: Clarity is an important factor when judging the price and quality of a Morganite gemstone. Morganite is naturally formed in clean crystals that make great gemstones with utmost clarity. But just to be sure, one should look for inclusions visible to the naked eye. As Morganite gemstones with no visible inclusions will hold a much higher value.
Cut: The cut determines how much gemstone material is used for faceting and therefore affects the price. Morganite gemstones with poor and inexperienced cuts are often rejected by most buyers which leads to a lower price. The most popular cuts to enhance the overall appearance of Morganite gemstone are oval cut, rectangular-cushion cut, heart cut, round cut, and square-cushion cut.
Carat Weight: The price of Morganite per carat is not usually affected by its size as Morganite frequently occurs in larger crystals. Rather, smaller Morganites showcasing vivid colors can be more valuable than the larger ones. In order to show good color, Morganite gemstones must be so large that it becomes impossible to use them in jewelry. A buyer must understand that the weight of gemstones in India is usually expressed in Ratti and not in Carat. The difference between Ratti and Carat – (1 Ratti = 0.91 carat).
