Alexandrite

Contact Us

Alexandrite, the color changing gem, was named after Tsar Alexander II following its discovery in the Ural Mountains of Russia in 1830. Symbolic of transitions, this gem changes from a vibrant emerald green in daylight to a luscious red when under incandescent light. The greens are often accompanied by hues of blue while its reds are often accompanied by purple. The color change of alexandrite is further effected by its nature as a pleochroic mineral. This means that its color change is also influenced by the angle from which it is viewed. Major resources for alexandrite include the Ural Mountains of Russia as well as parts of Brazil and Sri Lanka.
