The third round of Houseki no Kuni (Land of the Lustrous) character introductions are here, introducing Morganite and Goshenite with a beautiful illustration.
Morganite has very refreshing pink hair and their pose makes it seem like they are a very cheerful people. Paired with Morganite is Goshenite, who seems like they are a very gentle gem and sporting very short, silver hair and their eyebrows are up, giving them a worried expression.
