Morganite

Morganite - Morganite is also very popular for jewellery finishing. The stone, found late in 1911, is a variation of the beryl family. It enchants the observer not only with its magnifying glass purity, but also with its pink and violet appearance, which is caused by traces of manganese. Morganite was discovered in Madagascar. Its original name was "pink beryl". But this was changed with the renaming by gemmologist George Frederick Kunz. He dedicated the name "Morganit" to the banker John Pierpont Morgan. The morganite is related to the emerald and the aquamarine and is nowadays mainly mined in Madagascar, Afghanistan and Brazil. Today it adorns numerous pieces of jewellery and enjoys great popularity.
