Morganite, also known as "pink beryl", "rose beryl", "pink emerald", and "cesian (or caesian) beryl", is a rare light pink to rose-colored variety of beryl. Pink beryl of fine color and good sizes was first discovered on an island on the coast of Madagascar in 1910. It was also known, with other gemstone minerals, such as tourmaline and kunzite, at Pala, California. In December 1910, the New York Academy of Sciences named the pink variety of beryl "morganite" after financier J. P. Morgan. There are morganites in many pink hues, some are decidedly pink, others tend more to lilac or light violet, and some have a hint of orange.
Morganite is a stone of Divine Love with a very feminine energy. It is said to bring healing, compassion, assurance and promise, attracting an abundance of love into one’s life and assists in maintaining that love as it continues to grow. Morganite can encourage loving thoughts and actions, consideration and responsibility, and being receptive to love from others. It can inspire joy and reverence for life, and is believed to increase the opportunities which allow one to experience the unconditional love of the Divine.
