Alexandrite    June Birthstone    as also the Pearl.

 is the most famous variety of Crysoberyl; it was found on the birthday of, and named for, Czar Alexander II of Russia in 1830. This transparent chrysoberyl varies in apparent color depending on the incident light -- selective absorption of different wavelengths of light cause it to appear green or blue-green in daylight or fluorescent light and red to purplish in incandescent light. Fine alexandrite is exceedingly rare and expensive, especially in sizes over a carat. Some are worth much more than Diamonds. The finest color changes are seen in the stones from Russia, and Zimbabwe, but good stones are also found in Sri Lanka and Brazil. 

Beautiful Alexandrite in top quality, is very rare indeed and hardly ever used in modern jewellery. Old Russian master jewelers loved the stone, and some small Alexandrites were occasionally also used in Victorian jewellery from England.    Fine Alexandrites are rarer than fine ruby, sapphire or emerald, and are often found only in old estate jewelry.

To make this rare gemstone available to the consumer todayfine Lab Created Alexandrites have the SAME chemical elements, color, hardness and crystal structure as a natural stone, but are created in a laboratory, under controlled man made conditions, to recreate all the allure and beauty of the original, extinct gemstone.
It has been said that only about one person in every 100,000 people has ever seen a true Alex.
Real Alex's are very small stones, anything over a couple of carats costs many, many thousands. I have a friend who arranged for a 7 Carat Gem auctioned that brought 1/2 million dollars. Truth is a nice Gem to has to be seen, that means it has to be a larger Gem.

IF YOU WANT AN Absolutely true Alexandrite 'mined' from the earth then talk to these people. They have helped me in the past when I was about to get fooled. They are honest Alex Dealers. But their prices reflect reality for a TRUE ALEX.   

I can offer you a good hard Lab-Mohs 9 Nice Purple Alex that will stand up where Amethyst are damaged and lose color.  If you want a very, very, tough Blue-Green-Purple stone, then lets talk.
Lab Alex's can run from $50 to $350 per CARAT depending upon their quality. Just like any real gemstone. Women are wonderful, but "BooB Jobs" can help some. 
A good Alex can be made. Man can do what has been done

before! In a million years less time.
