Description: These morganite facets come in various traditional shapes.
Morganite is a pink to peach-colored gemstone that belongs to the beryl mineral family, which also includes emerald and aquamarine. The gemstone is named after the financier and gemstone collector J.P. Morgan, who helped introduce it to the American market in the early 20th century.
Morganite is typically found in Brazil, Madagascar, and Afghanistan, among other locations. Its delicate pink color is due to the presence of manganese in its crystal structure, and can range from pale pink to a more intense, peachy pink hue.
Morganite is a popular gemstone for use in jewelry due to its attractive color and durability. It has a hardness of 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, which makes it suitable for use in all types of jewelry, including rings, earrings, and pendants.
In addition to its decorative uses, morganite is also believed by some to have healing properties. It is said to promote calmness and emotional healing, and to help alleviate stress and anxiety.
