The Lost Morganite Gemstone
Agatha Christie’s, “The Lost Mine”, opens with a friendly disagreement between Poirot and his friend Captain Hastings on the subject of investments. The story proceeds to uncover that the main character is a gambler and debtor who has arranged for an impersonator to receive some money. We believe he was wearing a Morganite ring, named after J.P. Morgan, one of the greatest financiers in history.
One of the many interesting properties of Morganite is its intense red color, fluorescent when exposed to x-rays. Discovered by miners in Madagascar in 1911, the magenta-colored stones from those deposits still set the color standard for this gemstone.
Morganite is a universal stone of unconditional love as it helps both attract and maintain love. It is related to Emerald, Heliodor, and Aquamarine, and it is a pink variety of Beryl. Since it is usually gentle, light pink in coloring, it is the perfect compliment to blue outfits while it also helps reveal the true beauty of your skin.
Holding a piece of Morganite is believed to bring a sense of deep peace and joy, both within us and with the world. Physically, Morganite eases symptoms associated with emphysema and asthma. It may help with heart palpitations, thyroid problems, and nervous system disorders as well.
Money often comes alone with love stories and adventures. Wearing Morganite might open up new horizons and you don’t even have to steal anything to do so!
“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”
