|Morganite / モルガナイト|
|First appearance||Vol. 7, Chapter 47|
|Nickname||Morga / モルガ|
|Family||The other Gems|
Morganite (モルガナイト, Moruganaito) is one of the gems who mainly does patrol duty.
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 short. They wear a pony-tail in the summer.
Morganite was born shortly after Phos began their 102 year rest. Morga at first is shy to speak to Phos but is later forced by their partner Gosh to approach Phos and ask them if the gems like the other Morganite better, and Phos simply tells them that they do not like the old Morga as they saw them violent and arrogant and that they often looked down on Phos despite being yelled at more by sensei, but then admits that the old Morga was fun to be around. Phos then tells Morga that the gems love them as much as they love old Morga, and so would old Morga, and promises that they will meet each other someday, and then they could ask old Morga themself.
Morga takes this to heart and is constantly follows Phos till they get to meet old Morga around with Goshenite, going as far to watch Phos sleep and asking Sensei to work with Phos. Sensei accepts seeing the two younger gems could learn so much from Phos.
Morga and Gosh are then seen playing around with Phos with their swords until Cairngorm and Phos are called to help with a Lunarian at Twin Shores. They end up causing trouble for Phos, climbing up Phos' gold alloy to the Lunarian vessel and forcing Phos to protect them by putting up alloy in front and exposing Phos to attacks, where an arrow later strikes just above Phos' head and cutting their ponytail off. Morga and Goshe later apologize to Phos and help Phos to look for their hair.
Morga and Gosh are later seen diving in the ocean looking for Phos' last lock of hair with new underwater costumes made by Red Beryl before soon finding a sea slug that they mistake for a jellyfish, who later turns out to be Variegatus
Like how other Gems treated each other, it can be assumed that Morganite has nice relationship with their other siblings and also likes and trusts their 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.
