What is morganite?
Morganite is a member of the beryl family and cousin to the lustrous emerald. Pastel pink, peachy pink and bright flamingo pink are the signature colors of this gentle gem. When you observe it at different angles, morganite shines pale pink to a deeper, bluish pink—a phenomenon called pleochroism. Morganite is most commonly mined in Brazil, but deposits are occasionally found in the US, Afghanistan and Mozambique.
