Rare Alexandrites have sometimes been discovered near emeralds. Except a wonderful chemical fluke during the creation of these crystals resulted in a completely different, color-changing gemstone called alexandrite. This beautiful and completely natural alexandrite has the sought-after color-change combination of bluish green in sunlight changing to reddish purple in incandescent light. This large, untreated 2.11 carats loose gemstone is very eye clean and without color zoning. It has a brilliant/step cut and an alluring oval shape. A GIA report is also included. Alexandrites are durable gemstones, with a hardness rating of 8.5 on the Mohs scale so this special jewel can easily be worn as an extravagant ring or perhaps a creative pendant to celebrate a June birthday or 55th wedding anniversary.
