Morganite, the sister stone of emerald and aquamarine, was first discovered in California and is named for J.P. Morgan, one of the greatest financiers in history and one of the most important gem collectors in the early 1900s. Originally known as pink beryl, this peachy pink gem which is rarer than aquamarine, receives its blush hue through traces of manganese. Stronger colors are possible, although the finest colors are mainly achieved through larger stones. Morganite crystals can be quite large, with stones in Brazil weighing over 22 pounds. The largest Morganite weighing in at 50 pounds was uncovered in the U.S. in 1989 and named "The Rose of Maine." The largest faceted Morganite is a 598.70-carat cushion-shape from Madagascar in the collection of the British Museum. Symbolically, Morganite is thought to induce peace, joy and inner strength.

"Le Vian® masterfully combines the peachy pink flavors of its highly selective Peach MorganiteTM with Strawberry Gold®, to create a new effect which enhances the beauty and femininity in any woman."
