Alexandrite is the very rare color-change variety of the mineral chrysoberyl and is often described as “emerald by day, ruby by night,” due to its ability to change its color depending upon the light source.
Our cushion-cut stone displays deep purples and greens, like medieval velvets.
It's no coincidence that the color-change Alexandrite is the birthstone for the month of June, and the star-sign Gemini. Gemini is called "The Twins", for a light-hearted dual personality.
Fine-quality Alexandrite gems larger than one carat are very rare. Collectors will take note of this unusual piece. It's also a unique choice for a piece of custom jewelry designed for a risk-taker, thrill-seeker, or magician.
