Morganite

Morganite was first discovered in California in the early twentieth century. A rich gem find of tourmaline, kunzite, and other gems outside San Diego started a gem rush in the region.  Morganite was an exciting new discovery, one that drew the attention of the world's most important gem buyer: George Kunz of Tiffany & Co. He decided to name it in honor of his biggest customer: millionaire bank tycoon J.P. Morgan, who was an avid gem collector.

Although its color is pastel, it has a lushness rare in pink gemstones.
 
There are deposits of this gemstone in Brazil, Mozambique, Namibia, Afghanistan, and Russia.

Morganite is a durable gemstone perfect for everyday wear. Clean with mild dish soap: use a toothbrush to scrub behind the stone where dust can collect.
