Loose Alexandrite Stone

.91ctw Loose Emerald Cut Alexandrite

Most people don't realize that Alexandrite has an incredible phenomenon known as "color change." They are known as a "ruby by day" "emerald by night" 

Its color can be a lovely green in daylight or fluorescent light, changing to brownish or purplish red in the incandescent light from a lamp or candle flame. 

After placing this beauty in my light box to take photos I switched the light source from a yellow (hallogen) light to a bright white light. This is the only change we made from one photo to the next. The color is absolutely incredible in both lights!
