Morganite stone, also known as Pink Beryl, is the pink variety of the mineral beryl. It’s been named after famous American banker J.P. Morgan and its coloration has been attributed to irradiation from radioactive materials in the earth. In recent years, it has become popular for engagement rings and earrings since its pink color symbolizes love and understanding between two people, which makes it an excellent choice if you want to propose to someone or get your significant other something special on an anniversary or Valentine’s Day.

 

Physical Properties

Physically, morganite is a pale pink or peach-colored gemstone. However, if light travels through it at certain angles, it turns into an attractive purplish hue. When treated in a lab and cut properly, morganite can appear in shades of green, blue and yellow as well. Like other types of onyx stone (the banded variety of chalcedony), morganite is fairly tough to scratch and works well in jewelry that’s exposed to daily wear and tear. The only catch: It may become brittle when exposed to extreme heat or cold over long periods of time.

 

Spiritual Properties

The unique and rare quality of morganite makes it a great stone for new beginnings, individuality, self-confidence, and self-expression. This stone can be worn to help with internal power struggles, especially in matters of sexuality. Onyx is thought to have strong healing properties on a physical level as well; it is thought to relieve stomach issues such as constipation and cramps. Physically speaking, Onyx helps stabilize your emotions while simultaneously boosting confidence and self-control. If you are having trouble figuring out what your soul wants in terms of career or love interests, putting an onyx stone around your neck can strengthen its spiritual guidance.
