Non-treated Morganite
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 02-10-10 , 04:23 PM


Some time in the future I must own a morganite ring but I am bit of a purist and I would not like the stone to be dyed or radiated. Does such a thing as a untreated morganite with a pink hue even exist?

Love
Karin

As I recall, it typically is heat treated to remove orange hue.

Thanks,

Yes they do exist from strong purplish red to slight purplish red and these are considered pink. You cannot tell even from the rough crystal before it is cut wether heat treatment has taken place.
The removal of orange from the color is a typical result of heat treatment. there is no change to the structure of the gem as this is typically done at a very low temperature I have done this myself to see the before and after. It is unusual in the sense that the crystal is formed at very high temperatures and yet only a low temperature is required to remove the orange hence one could wonder does the orange form over many years like hundreds perhaps. Many gems on the market are heat treated, practically all today including diamonds they are heated to remove the brown hue and host diamonds improve but here we are talking very high temperatures. I have a Morganite that so far as I can tell has never been treated in any form what so ever. I think this is the best cut morganite for a round that I have ever seen amongst many collections. I could have had a bigger stone cuting more comercially or even an oval but it lent itself to a brilliant fiery cut being so subtle but definetely Pink.
