Default Morganite

I am very drawn to this stone and not just because of the name(although that did draw me to it) and despite the pinkness of most stones (others I have seen are so pale as to appear almost diamond like).
When you google the stone, almost all the jewelery that comes up is really mainstream, pretty looking and not really my cup of tea. That said, I did see a piece on etsy - a ring - that I probably won't buy because I'd wear it so rarely, but it has a distinct faerie energy to it that immediately pulled me in. What does anyone know about Morganite?

This is a typical presentation of the stone, and I love this, but it's again not a daily wear sort of piece for me:






But then I see raw beads that look like this, sort of like darker watermelon tourmaline? I LOVE these:



Then again I see this:

(Images are too large to post)
And these look nothing like the pale pink to salmon hues I most often see.

Lightdragon, anyone? Would you be able to fill me in a bit about this stone? I am drawn to it, and feel like I was led to it - not sure why, or why there are such dramatic colour variations either.

Morganite is a beryl. same family of stones as aquamarine and emeralds. one could say it was a pink emerald. but sometimes called bixbite or pink beryl. although bixbite is separate mineral altogether.(and that gem is called red beryl to not confuse it with bixbybite which is also another mineral.).

offhand morganite is anti-segregation stone.it helps people see the equality between sexes , race and religion.

it also helps with self control,loving thoughts and actions. also gives patience and love for life.

also it is an excellent stone for the heart chakra.


EDIT: offhand the two pics you offered are imitation morganite stones. well at least the beads are definitely imitation morganite. a dead give away is the purple color. morganite has a variety of pinks not purple. there is a commercial beryl that is sometimes called green morganite but they are light pastel like greens.

Thanks for this, Lightdragon. Would you have any pictures of the real thing?

btw the stone is named after JP Morgan so in a way you can call it the stone of JPMogan banks or Chase's stone.
but actual real names it also goes under besides pink beryl and pink emeralds are rose beryl,cesium and cesium beryl.

also it is a non-traditional birthstone for scorpios but is a stone of Taurus.

they also help you with research or get a fresh start.

can be used to honor Tiamat and Astarte

angels that are partial to this stone are Ariel,Geniel,Hariel,Jophiel,Leuviah,
Machidiel,Mumiel,Vasiarhiah

YOu know what, the fact this stone was named for JP Morgan has taken a lot of the attraction out of it for me.
I don't love pink in general, but I now really feel...un-attracted.
