Natural 4x2mm Color change Alexandrite Marquise cut gems From Russia
Discovered in 1830 in Russia and named after Czar Alexander II, who was then Crown Prince of Russia. Alexandrite appears to change color under different forms of light. In daylight they appear blue-green, and in artificial light they will change to reddish purple or deep purple.
With its good hardness of 8.5, Alexandrite is an uncomplicated stone to wear. The more intensive the change of colour, the more valuable the stone. Fine Alexandrite, especially in qualities of over one carat, thus belongs to the most expensive gemstones in the world. It is rarer than fine Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald or even Diamonds. Its value does mainly depend on the depth of the colour change: a really fine Alexandrite should show a vivid green in daylight, and change to purple-red or deep purple in artificial light, without any trace of undesired brown.
Faceted alexandrite gemstones with good color change are considered very valuable, even when visible inclusions are present.
