Alexandrite

Stone of Regeneration

Alexandrite is the color changing cousin of the Chrysoberyl family. Once thought quite rare gemstone in this world, recently they have been found in Africa.

The Alexandrite Gemstone has the unique characteristic of appearing green in the daylight and glowing red in artificial light.

There does not seem to be any writings of Alexandrite in ancient text. It was unknown until 1830 when it seems to have been discovered on the birthday of Czar Alexander II, thus the stone was named in his honor.
