Is morganite made synthetically? Don't think so.
If it was an imitation, what did it turn out to be?


I am curious what do you think that morganite couldn't be made synthetic? I will search for the gemological report and for the stone as proof. The lab only says ''sythentic'' and nothing else, they issue reports only natural stones.

I'm saying that synthetic morganite is not made for commercial distribution.
That is why it would surprise me if you had synthetic morganite and not imitation morganite.

Yeah, I just took a quick look at Chatham's site, and they only seem to be selling it already cut and set in jewelry, for prices above what I'd pay for natural material, eg: https://www.chatham.com/collections/mor ... -cp3798rmo
