Morganite is a peachy to light pink member of the beryl family, that is colored by manganese and iron impurities. It is often heat treated to enhance and stabilize the pink color, and reduce any yellow or orange hues. With a hardness between 7.5-8, it is commonly used in rings and high-end jewelry. It was renamed after the legendary financier J.P. Morgan in 1911 for his contributions to the American Museum of Natural History, after originally being known as Pink Beryl.
