So, what is morganite?
Morganite is a pink gemstone which ranges in colors of pink—from pale blush, to rose, to peach, to salmon. These most common and popular stones are often on the lighter shade, deeper shades may be more valuable. The morganite is often heat-treated to improve the color, which gets rid of the yellow or orange tint these stones sometimes carry. That leaves you with a pretty pink — and a stable color that won’t fade.
Not only is morganite a beaut, gemstone lore considers it of Divine Love. Mythology says the stone brings compassion, assurance, healing, and promise — all things that make up a happy marriage!
