Morganite is a form of Beryl which as a result of various trace elements comes in many colors. Colors include greenish-yellow, blue to blue-green, red, colorless and pink. The pink variety is known as Morganite, red is very rare and known as Bixbite, Goshenite is the colorless form. Golden beryl also known as Heliodor is a yellow-green. Furthermore aquamarines and emeralds are actually a variety of beryl.
Beryls are some of the most valuable of all the colored gemstones.
Morganite’s subtle color is due to traces of manganese. Because morganite has distinct pleochroism—pale pink and a deeper bluish pink—it’s necessary to orient the rough carefully for fashioning. Strong color in morganite is rare, and gems usually have to be large to achieve the finest color.
