What is Morganite?
The heart stone of Morganite is here to remind you that life is peachy. This pale pink stone is all about stepping through the world as though you are walking on air. A member of the bright and beautiful Beryl family, Morganite is said to be the Crystal of Divine Love and is always ready to take you by the hand and lead you out into the light.
It’s no surprise to hear that this stone was uncovered out in California in the early 20th century. One glance at the soft pink color and the feel-good vibes that flow and you know, this glimmering gemstone is all California dreaming. It’s sky rinsed sunsets, staying up all night on the beach to watch the break of day, salty soft skin, and that unbridled heart-bursting joy that comes with crashing into the waves. Morganite doesn’t just stay put on the shores of the USA, it has also been discovered blushing pink beneath the skies of Brazil, Madagascar, Afghanistan, and even beneath the bright lights of New York.
When first discovered, the pale pink stone went by another name – Pink Beryl after the Beryl family from which it is born. There are tons of different kinds of Beryl; blue, green, aquamarine, gold, and red. But this type of Beryl had something different about it and the chief gemologist for Tiffany & Co decided it should be given a name to make it stand out from the crowd. He called it Morganite after the famous financier JP Morgan. JP Morgan was also a gem collector and dedicated many glimmering treasures to the American Museum of Natural History so all could share in his love for sparkly gifts from Mother Earth. He also spent a lot of time splashing the cash at Tiffany & Co and the name was pledged in honor to him, their finest customer.
Morganite is a relatively rare gemstone. It only grows in small quantities and in the presence of other minerals which is partly what makes it so precious. It’s a stone you truly have to dig deep for, it needs to be plucked from cracks and crevices and it has the same sparkling luster and hardness as a star. It’s a very special stone and here we delve in deep and help you discover more about the Morganite meaning.

Morganite Healing Properties
Morganite is a magician of the heart and comes with a whole swathe of healing properties. Like all the heart chakra stones, it is a nurturer and always ready to open you up to the wonders that are waiting for you in the wider world.

It pulls no punches in revealing to you where you may be dipping into anger and resentment, and where these defense mechanisms may be springing up from in the first place.

Connected with the Heart Chakra, Morganite is all about keeping your heart open and energy in flow.

Morganite keeps you open and ever ready for all your heart has to receive. It also works with the divine heart, the place where our compassion and understanding shines like the sun out from our soul.

Pisces are known for their high empathy, their romantic energy, and their perfectly playful pleasure-seeking ways. If that doesn’t sound like a dreamy match for the divine love stone we don’t know what does!
On the other foot, Taureans can be a smidge stubborn and a little strong-willed. Morganite works on Taureans in a different way, by softening the edges that sometimes can be a little too hard. Morganite will seep into your soul and make you more patient, more loving, and filled with compassion so you can see life from the other side.
