Chatham Lab-Grown
Morganites

Chatham makes the beauty of this gem much more available with lab-grown morganites that have the sought-after color of the best mined gems. Growing morganite crystals takes about nine months. We create the perfect environment so the pink crystals grow large and saturated in color. When we cut the crystals, we cut away about 80% of the rough to give you faceted morganites that have excellent color, clarity, and brilliance.

Best of all, we cut our morganites in a wide variety of shapes that are otherwise almost impossible to find. And because they are created in our labs, they have less of an impact on the environment than mined gems.

About Morganites

Just peachy, the color of morganite is what attracts most collectors to this exotic gem. Its soft pastel blush tone is so flattering against the skin. Its pink champagne color looks especially lovely set in rose gold. This feminine gem is a variety of beryl, the gem family that also includes emerald and aquamarine.

When a large deposit of top quality rosy beryl was found in Madagascar in 1910, Tiffany gemologist George Kunz named it after the financier J.P. Morgan. Morgan was one of the world’s most important gem collectors, buying many of the gems that now form the collection of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. (Which, not surprisingly, now include some spectacular morganites.)

Today morganites with the fine pink color of that first Madagascar deposit are very difficult to find, especially in small sizes. Like aquamarine, morganite’s color often is pale and washed out in small sizes. Most morganites need to be over ten carats to have more intense color.
