Natural Morganite Sterling Silver Necklace

Details

Beautiful Cor de Rosa Morganite (.1.35ct ,VS, Africa) hand set in a 925 sterling silver setting with a sterling silver chain.
Morganite is the pretty, peachy-pink variety of beryl, cousin to more familiar beryls like emerald and aquamarine. Morganite's beautiful, ladylike colors are a result of the presence of manganese or cesium. Morganite was first discovered in California in the early 20th century and soon thereafter in Madagascar. Though there are also small deposits in Brazil, Mozambique, Namibia, Afghanistan, and Russia, quality morganite remains relatively rare. In fact, ironically, morganite's rarity keeps it relatively affordable, since there aren't enough standard-sized stones available for use in manufactured jewelry. Widespread use and exposure could increase morganite's popularity, then its demand, and then its price.
In 1911 at the suggestion of gemologist George F. Kunz, namesake of kunzite, the former "pink beryl" was renamed after J. Pierpont Morgan, an American banker and collector, in honor of his gemological and mineral contributions to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Morgan was an avid collector and a customer of Tiffany's, where much of the country's morganite was sold at that time.
