A stunning large oval cut morganite, set in 9ct white gold surrounded by sparkling white diamonds.
Morganite is the pretty, peachy-pink variety of beryl. Morganite's beautiful feminine colours are a result of the presence of manganese. After its discoveries in California and Madagascar in the early 20th century, this pink beryl was renamed Morganite as suggested by famed gemmologist George F. Kunz. Named in honour of financier and gem enthusiast J. P. Morgan, Morganite has many redeeming qualities, including durability, lustre, clarity and brilliance. Though there are also small deposits in Brazil, Mozambique, Namibia, Afghanistan, and Russia, quality Morganite remains relatively rare.
This pendant measures at 22 x 13.5mm and the morganite measures at 12 x 9.8mm.
