It is often a clear/soft pink to violet stone, which can also be translucent to clear in coloring. Metaphysically, this stone is often used ti inspire spiritual love, compassion, equality and uplifting the spirit. It is a “stone of empathy” and allows for better patience. It connects us to our Heart Chakra.

Morganite us often used in healing grids and crystal pouches to help encourage the love, beauty, peacefulness one needs most in their lives. It helps us to look at the side of forgiveness and can show us how letting go of “the little things” helps us to be stronger and more secure in ourselves. This blushing rose colored stone empowers our ability to love ourselves even more when we meditate with it, as it encourages self-love and emotional balance!

Folk Remedies: Throughout history, this stone has been used for emotional aspects of the heart, lungs, better breathing, throat issues, where communication is not from the heart, and better oxygenation. One of the highest frequency stones available to us.

Feng Shui: Morganite can be used to balance both Yin and Yang. Use morganite in the Southwest area for relationships (be sure and use two). Use in the Center area for emotional balance or in any other area where emotional healing is needed.

History: Morganite (Be3Al2(SiO3)6) is beryllium aluminum silicate. This overgrowth hydrothermal of hexagonal silicate is pink from Manganese. It is also sold on the market as pink beryl, rose beryl, cesian or pink emerald stone. When exposed to high temperatures, it will change or lose it’s color. It was first discovered on an island off the coast of Madagascar in 1910. It was also discovered with other gemstone minerals, such as tourmaline and kunzite at Pala, California.

In December 1910, the New York Academy of Sciences named the pink variety of beryl “morganite” after financier J. P. Morgan. On October 7, 1989, one of the largest gem morganite specimens ever uncovered, eventually called “The Rose of Maine,” was found at the Bennett Quarry in Buckfield, Maine, US.

With Divine Love & Forgiveness

Morganite brings energies of stability, gentle love, calm, balance, courage and inner strength. It has been used to encourage forgiveness and the ability to let go.

It helps to open communication with the heart. Resonating with the Heart Chakra, Morganite allows us the path of self-realization and more self-love. It softens our spirit so that we can better understand the process of the heart and the trusting and opening of our mind in order to let our guard down and see a situation for what it really is.

It is an excellent stone for meditation or self-help, and can assist you in seeing your path.

Morganite Elixir

A crystal elixir or gem essence combines the energy of your crystal that is infused in either water or oil. It is often placed in the sun in order for the crystal to imbue the water or oil with the crystal’s energy or Qi and then the decoction is used for healing and anointing.

Here is what you need: A glass container filled with about 12 ounces of water. If you are going to be placing your essence outside, be sure to cover it.   Read more here

Cleansing & Charging Morganite

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
