Morganite is a member of the beryl family and gets its pink colour from the mineral manganese. Some call it the "pink emerald". This is one of the finest stones for working with the heart centre and with all issues around love and compassion, especially for the Self. It opens us to the reality of the Love of the Divine, which is infinite and all-encompassing in its nature. As such it also helps release stored pains and trauma from all bodies, but especially the emotional body. It is similar in its uses to kunzite, but is more gentle and supportive of our human idiosyncrosies as it works. Some might describe it as a "higher" vibration of rose quartz.
