Morganite is really making a splash these days and we’re just tickled pink about it!

A beryl mostly known for its soft, pink color, Morganite can also be found in peach, salmon and violet hues. While a sister stone of Emerald, Morganite typically forms without inclusions. Its translucent luster gives it a unique warmth and elegance.

Many consider Morganite to be a “new” gemstone, but it has existed for millions of years, only earning the name Morganite, a nod to banker J.P. Morgan, in 1911.

Gaining popularity over the past several years, this coveted stone makes a great statement piece as a cocktail ring, pendant, or earrings. It’s often seen set in a complimentary rose gold, often surrounded by diamonds or white topaz.

Hardness: 7.5 to 8 on Mohs Scale
Sources: Brazil, Russia, Madagascar, Africa, China, Afghanistan
