Morganite, gemstone for jewelry
Morganite is a pink gemstone that is closely related to aquamarine and emerald - in fact, it is a mineral that includes both. Also known as Vorobevite, this rare stone (named after financier J.P. Morgan) ranges in color - from light reddish, to pink, and peach to salmon. The most common stones are often found in the lighter shade of the family, but deeper shades can be more valuable. Morganite is often heat-treated to improve the color, which gets rid of the yellow or orange hue that these stones sometimes wear. It leaves a beautiful pink and a steady color that doesn't fade. Morganite is not only a beautiful gemstone, in the holistic world it encompasses energies such as compassion, self-assurance, healing and divine love.
