The pink form of beryl was named morganite, after the American banker and collector J.P. Morgan. A soft pink to violet, morganite belongs to the same family as emerald and aquamarine. Like the other beryls, morganite is quite hard (7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale) but also rather brittle.
Deposits are found in Afghanistan, Brazil, China, Madagascar, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe and the USA.
Morganite has indeed become one of the most popular gems of the decade is is frequently used in gemstone rings, engagement rings - center stones and as fancy accent melee - and morganite is very-well suited for all other types of gemstone jewelry, including gemstone earrings, pins and brooches, as well as in necklaces and fine gemstone pendants.

Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
