A member of the beryl family, morganite found its name in 1911 when it drew the attention of one of the world's most esteemed gemstone experts, George Kunz of Tiffany & Co®. He named it in honor of millionaire banker and mineral collector John Pierpont Morgan. Morganite may be the least-known of the beryl family (other gems in the beryl family include aquamarine and emerald), and its relative newness and rarity make it a unique, sought-after, beautiful jewelry stone. Morganite's color can range from a soft pink, to peach, to violet-pink. Morganite is commonly heat-treated to remove any unwanted yellow tones and to produce the more desired pure pink color.

Morganite is believed to nurture feelings of love and to increase tenderness in a relationship. Morganite can enhance communications skills and provide patience to help focus during times of stress.

Morganite is rated at 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness and is a durable stone ideal for all jewelry purposes.
