Morganite is a beautiful gem that’s a pastel-pink cousin to the popular beryls, which include emerald and aquamarine. It was discovered in the early 20th century in both California and Madagascar. Although, it’s really pink beryl, it was renamed to morganite in honor of J.P. Morgan who was a famous financier. While it’s not as expensive as a diamond, it’s almost as rare. There aren’t many stones available for jewelry.
