Morganite - Universal Love Stone
Morganite is said to bring a sense of peace, and joy for everyone, and a strong message of love and compassion.
Morganite gets its pink hue from the presence of manganese or cesium in the stone. It's actually a pink variety of Beryl -- the family of gemstones that also includes Aquamarine, Emerald and Heliodore -- and is often cut to highlight its chatoyant qualities. Its colour can be a soft pink, a warm peach, or some degree of pink in between. The stone was discovered by George D. Kunz, the same gemologist that discovered Kunzite, and was named Morganite in honour of John Pierpoint Morgan, who was a great admirer and collector of gemstones.
