What is Morganite Stone?
Morganite is a pink semi-precious stone belonging to the beryl mineral family which also includes the more common beryls like emerald and aquamarine.
Available in a variety of colors including pink, rose, peach, purple and salmon, the pink and rose colored stones are the most sought after today. The deeper shades tend to be much more rare and valuable.
On the Mohs scale, morganites stand at approximately 7.5. Compared to the diamond score of 10, morganites are softer and are more prone to scratching, so extra care is needed for everyday jewelry like engagement rings. Not only are they softer than the traditional diamonds, this stunning pink-colored stone is budget-friendly and much less expensive on a dollar-per-carat basis. Morganites are a great alternative to diamonds because of its combination of hardness, durability, clarity and soft romantic hue.
