Hydrothermal Pink Morganite
Lab Created Morganite – Hydrothermal Morganite – Synthetic Hydrothermal Morganite
Natural Morganite is one of the most recently discovered precious gemstone, found in the 20th century in Madagascar. Due to Natural Morganite‘s popularity, rarity and high prices, we had to find a lab created version of Morganite that has the same chemical properties as the Natural Morganite. The lab created Morganite we sell in this section are made by hydrothermal growth (newest “Platinum” technology) which is slow and only method for successfully growing synthetic Morganite. This process requires heat and pressure and imitates the conditions deep in the earth that result in the formation of natural gems. Nutrients are dissolved in a water solution, and then synthetic crystals form as the solution cools.
The lab created morganite cannot be created by flame fusion, crystal pulling or flux growth method. The quality and resemblance of synthetic morganite created by hydrothermal process is considered to be the best as it follows the same process as Natural Morganite.
Natural Morganites are often over-valued because of its rarity. It is better to buy Synthetic Morganite or Lab Created Morganite made by hydrothermal method as they have exact same chemical compositon and physical composition and are sold at fraction of price of natural Morganite. They also appear brighter and more vivid than natural Morganites making it better than natural beryl.
Morganites comes in many colors like subtle pink, rose-red, or strong peach color. But in this section, we are only selling Lab Created Morganite in its Pink shade. If you want Lab Created Morganite in peach color then please order Nano Morganite
Loose lab created Hydrothermal Pink Morganite gemstone is available in all shapes and sizes.

Hydrothermal morganite possess very little difference when compared to natural morganite. Only when observed under high magnification microscope in labs, small bubbles or foreign particles can only differentiate between them.
Here at GEMS N GEMS, you can find the best quality hydrothermal morganite at the best price available in the market.
