How to Clean Morganite

By Bryant Harland

Morganite is a pink tinted gemstone in the beryl family. It has only been known as "morganite" since 1911. Before that, it was known as a pink form of Beryl. It is commonly used in fashion jewelry and engagement rings. The gem is often heated to maintain its pinkish color, and this process is stable, making morganite easy to take care of.

Dip a microfiber cloth in warm, soapy water.

Gently scrub the surface of the morganite. If the gemstone is set in a ring, you may also want to use a light brush to scrub the edges.

Dry the gemstone by wiping it with a clean, dry cloth. Eliminate as much excess moisture as possible.

Warning

Avoid exposing morganite to high levels of heat.
