Looking for some Australian Morganite to cut - any suggestions appreciated, don't want to buy O/S stuff in case of the 'rip-off' factor, it is to cut a square brilliant for a ring so probably 10 - 12 ct so, with wastage,  cut to around 4ct

Hi Moth, if your looking for morganite from Australia it will be difficult. I've seen local aqua but not morganite. I'm sure it exists but will likely be very pale and small. On the other hand if you are looking for overseas morganite being sold in Australia, that's much easier. Just visit your local gemshow and seek out a rough supplier. The rough suppliers also do sales btwn shows if you have their contact details. You may locate the odd local supplier through these forums or the FB Groups. Obviously, being able to inspect rough prior to purchase minimises the chance of being 'ripped off' as you put it, but there are rough dealers out there that do stand behind their products and will happily exchange or refund if you have an issue. Best of luck.

Thank GR - had a request from a friend who wants me to cut a stone, preferably Aus for his wife - luckily the Geelong G & M show is looming so I will se what I can source there - as you say, at least I can have a good look at any rough pre-purchase.
