Morganite Fun Facts:
Morganite was initially discovered in the early 20th century in the state of California. The gem’s name “morganite” came from the suggestion of the New York gemologist G. F. Kunz in honor of the banker and mineral collector John Pierpont Morgan in 1911. Morganite's pretty colors are due to the presence of manganese or cesium. It is a peachy-pink beryl which is the cousin to more familiar beryls like emerald and aquamarine.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


Morganite is in the Beryl Family of Gems:
Morganite is made of the mineral "beryl" with the scientific name "beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate."
Beryl in its purest form is actually colorless; however, like many natural gems found on earth, this mineral is usually tinted by fragments of impurities to create its colors of green, blue, yellow, red, and white. Beryl can be found in European countries (Austria, Norway, Germany, Sweden, Ireland and Russia) as well as in Colombia, Madagascar, Mozambique, South Africa, Brazil and the United States (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Dakota, and Utah).
Gems other than morganite that are made of the mineral beryl are aquamarine (light blue to vivid sky blue), emerald (variations of green), golden beryl (variations of yellow and gold), goshenite (colorless), and red beryl (red).

Increase Popularity of Morganite in Jewelry
Morganite is becoming extremely popular with modern and current jewelry trends. Gem suppliers and wholesalers world-wide are finding it more and more difficult to meet the demands of the mass jewelry market that craves for this "pink-beryl." The increased popularity of rose gold in recent years may be a large contributing factor for the love of this gem. The marriage of morganite natural gems and rose gold settings have been widely accepted as a fashion statement for the modern look.
