Morganite is a variety of beryl (an aluminum beryllium silicate) like emerald and aquamarine. Its colour is pink and varies from light pink to violet-pink, peach, peachy-pink, or salmon color. That’s why, it is sometimes called “pink emerald”. Morganite is found mainly in Brazil and Madagascar but also in Afghanistan, China, Mozambique, Namibia, Russia, Zimbabwe and in the USA.
