Morganite is called a rose beryl–it is the pink, salmon-colored variety of the beryl gem family. It gets its pink color from the minerals manganese and/or cesium. A higher content of manganese or cesium will yield a more saturated pink in the morganite.
In 1908, a deposit of fine Morganite with exceptionally saturated and beautiful color was discovered in Madagascar. Tiffany’s gemologist George Kunz believed this newly discovered, rose-colored gem deserved a unique name. In 1910, Kunz proposed to the New York Academy of Sciences that pink beryl be named morganite in honor of financier and gem collector J.P. Morgan, who was creating one of the world’s greatest mineral collections for the American Museum of Natural History in New York. This museum is now known as the Morgan Hall of Gems. They agreed with Kunz’s proposal, and morganite was officially named a new gem variety.
While originally found in Madagascar, today’s morganite comes from pegmatite mines in Minas Gerais, Brazil. In addition, Afghanistan, Mozambique, Namibia, and the U.S. have smaller and inconsistent morganite sources.
