NOTE: This article contains spoilers! Read with caution.
Not to be confused with the new Morganite.
|First appearance||Vol.1, Chapter 1|
|Nickname||Morga / モルガ|
|Family||The other Gems|
Morganite has a pink color scheme, and wears the winter or summer uniform depending on the season. They also wear the standard black shoes, but no gloves or socks. Their hair is long and voluminous, which they braid before going to sleep at night. They wear a pony-tail in the summer.
Morganite is always ahead of themself. They're overconfident and brashly make decisions, such as when they went to handle a small sunspot with Goshenite without going Kongo-sensei first.
According to Phosphophyllite they're violent, arrogant, and often looked down on Phos despite being yelled more by Sensei, but despite that they were fun to be around.
- Pink yet trouble-making.
Morga is first seen calling for Phosphophyllite, who is asleep in the grass, telling Phos that Sensei has been looking for Phos. After Morga makes fun of Phos for a bit, Goshenite is seen rushing in exclaiming that there's a small sunspot to the south, and that they should report it to Kongo-Sensei, but Morga says that they should take care of it themselves and that they should give Kongo-Sensei a break every once in a while. Morga and Goshe then go ahead to fight the Lunarians, slicing up the main vessel in half only then to discover that it's not evaporating and that arrowheads made out of Heliodor come out the vessel's body. Seeing this, Morga sees it as the perfect opportunity to take back every piece of Helidor, only to have their arms and legs smashed to pieces by the Lunarians' arrows, just to be saved, then reprimanded, by Kongo-Sensei.
Morga and Gosh are later seen at the school being fixed up by Rutile and are approached by Phos asking if they can help, but Morga refuses saying that last time Phos switched Morga's right and left legs. Phos then insists that they help but Morga quickly changes the convo about Phos' job, but Phos says that it's a boring and useless job. After Rutile powders up Morga and Gosh, they attempt to go back to their posts before being stopped by Phos asking them to take her with them only to be instantly refused by Morga and call Phos dumb.
Morganite approaches Phos the next day to see if she made any progress only to be surprised that all the pages on Phos' notepad are empty. Morga then calls out Phos on how much they're resisting the job only for Phos to refute that and say that they're just working on the grand scheme of things. She then leaves after sarcastically telling Phos to "work hard and make a great discovery o great scholar".
Morga is later approached by Diamond for help on how to turn the slug (later to be known as Ventricosus) back to Phos, but Morga sees no problem with Phos staying as a slug as albeit they're gross, they're well behaved and don't make trouble for others only then to get attacked by the slug.
Morga is later seen assisting to get the large shell in which Phos is trapped in out of the pond.
Morga prepares and participates in hibernation with the other Gems.
Morga is hardly seen or heard of after this, not even appearing to assist with the three simultaneous sunspots. They are briefly seen greeting the Cairngorm, Morga beginning with "Ghost" but quickly correcting themselves.
Morga and Goshenite are taken a few years after Phos goes into a coma for 102 years after losing their head.
It's presumed that they are one of the Gems being restored in the Gem Restoration Project lead by Barbata, but this project is cancelled.
Phos thinks that since pink is a cute color, Morga must be cute too, but they aren't. Phos likes to nag them childishly, only to be met be teasing regarding them and their blank encyclopedia.
When Diamond took the slug (thought to be Phos) to Morga and Gosh, Morga remarked that it's gross, but atleast it's well behaved and isn't causing trouble, only to end up getting attacked by the slug.
Gosh is Morganite's partner. They're good partners, but Morga often gives Gosh trouble due to their brash decisions and overconfidence
Just as most other gems, Morganite loves Kongo-Sensei
- Mineral: Beryl
- Chemistry: Be3Al2Si6O18
- Color: Pink to orange-pink
Morganite, also known as "pink beryl", "rose beryl", "pink emerald", and "cesian (or caesian) beryl", is a rare light pink to rose-colored gem-quality variety of beryl. Orange/yellow varieties of morganite can also be found, and color banding is common. It can be routinely heat treated to remove patches of yellow and is occasionally treated by irradiation to improve its color.
Morganite’s subtle color is caused by traces of manganese. Because morganite has distinct pleochroism—pale pink and a deeper bluish pink—it’s necessary to orient the rough carefully for fashioning. Strong color in morganite is rare, and gems usually have to be large to achieve the finest color.
Morganite was named after J.P. Morgan, one of the greatest financiers in history.
- Both Morganite and Goshenite are varieties of beryl, hence why they are partnered.
- Morganite is the first character to speak in the manga.
