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.

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.

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.
