Morganite was first discovered alongside other gems, including Tourmaline and Aquamarine, in Pala, California in the early 20th century. Although this gemstone began its life millions of years ago, it has only been known and recognised in its own right since this time. It was named after the banker, JP Morgan, who was a great customer of the renowned gemologist George Frederick Kunz, who discovered deposits in Madagascar. Its depth of colour determines the quality and value of Morganite. Sometimes the gem can be confused with Kunzite, however, Kunzite is more of a bluish pink, whilst Morganite is more of an orangey, peach-pink. The clarity value depends on personal preference; there are plenty of women who prefer a Morganite with small inclusions, as it gives the appearance of fine silk.
Pure Gold as it comes out of the ground is yellow in colour. 9 and 18ct gold are alloys, containing gold and other metals. It is, therefore, possible to change the appearance of the gold by using different types of alloys. Many people believe that Rose Gold is old Gold and whilst it is true that copper has been used as an alloy for many years, possibly longer than using Silver, the colour of a Gold piece of jewellery has little to do with age, other than the styles of a certain era.
