Natural Alexandrite 2.72 Carats

Game-Changer. Alexandrite, the traditional birthstone for June and Gemini, is a moving target.  Perfect for the Gemini, sign of the Twins, who always seem to be running in opposing directions. And remember that Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury (Hermes in Greek), the quicksilver messenger with the winged sandals. This stone which shifts from sultry smoke-purple to brilliant blue-green, depending upon the light-source, exhibits what is called dichroism. The arrangements of the crystal structures inside the stone make this possible. During the Middle Ages, queens, empresses, princesses, czarinas and other world leaders often kept Alexandrites close at hand, stored in what was called in Italian a "credenza" (meaning proof or belief)-- the reason being that the Alexandrite was believed to detect the presence of poison in food, drink, or even in a wig or garment presented as a gift by a potential enemy.
