Morganite, as a rare semi-precious stone is part of the Beryl family. It is known as the pretty, peachy-pink variety of beryl, cousin to more familiar beryls like Emerald and Aquamarine. Morganite makes for a great alternative to diamonds when it comes to engagement rings, not only for its pretty-in-pink beauty favoured by the ladies, but also because of its durability.
