Alexandrite is a rare chrysoberyl variety with chameleon-like qualities. Its color is a lovely green in daylight or fluorescent light, but it changes to brownish or purplish red in the incandescent light from a lamp or candle flame. Alexandrite’s dramatic color change is sometimes described as “emerald by day, ruby by night.” Other gems also change color in response to a change in light source, but this gem’s transformation is so striking that the phenomenon itself is often called “the alexandrite effect.”

Sunny Gems keeps Alexandrite in various shades and sizes in cut stones & beads.
Sunny Gems can supply custom made sizes, shapes and cutting as per request.
