MORGANITE

Morganite is the pretty, peachy-pink variety of beryl, cousin to more familiar beryls like emerald and aquamarine. Morganite's beautiful, ladylike colors are a result of the presence of manganese or cesium. Morganite was first discovered in California in the early 20th century and soon thereafter in Madagascar. Though there are also small deposits in Brazil, Mozambique, Namibia, Afghanistan, and Russia, quality morganite remains relatively rare. In fact, ironically, morganite's rarity keeps it relatively affordable, since there aren't enough standard-sized stones available for use in manufactured jewelry. Widespread use and exposure could increase morganite's popularity, then its demand, and then its price.
