Even though their colors are completely different, they are all from the Beryl family of gems due to their similar trace elements and chemical make up.
Morganite is a spectacular looking gemstone displaying the most beautiful color of peachy pink tones. It’s name was changed from “Pink Beryl” to “Morganite” back in 1911 when it was named after the famous financier J.P. Morgan. He was not only a rock hound and collector of gems, but he invested much of his banking fortune into researching the types and whereabouts of gemstones worldwide.
