Alexandrite is a rare variety of gems that belong to the Chrysoberyl family. It's generally known for being a pleochroic gravestone, which means it changes color according to a light source. Alexandrite has a green to greenish-blue appearance in broad daylight but has a red to purplish-red tinge.
Alexandrite is frequently described by gem suckers as “ emerald by day, ruby by night”. Firstly discovered in Russia’s Ural Mountains in the 1830s, it’s now planted in Sri Lanka, East Africa, and Brazil, but fine material is exceptionally rare and precious.
Lab-Created alexandrite gemstone combined with natural diamonds adds extra sparkle to alexandrite rings.
Alexandrite is a gemstone for June.
