Alexandrite has been a popular gemstone since it was first discovered and since the invention of lab created stones, its easier to find a perfect specimen of this beautiful color-changer. I orientated this Alexandrite to maximize the blue instead of the traditional green, and the result was a gorgeous blue-purple that turns to a rose-violet under incandescent lighting.
This particular Alexandrite material was originally created for the United Sates Department of Defense.
As this stone is lab created, there are no inclusions.
Lab created gems are in every way identical to the gems mined from the earth: chemically, physically, and of course, visually. Labour intensive work and potentially unethical practices are replaced with clean labs that produce near inclusion free, to perfectly inclusion free gems. There is no environmental impact, leading to an exceptionally lower carbon footprint. This also means more freedom for the purchaser to own a gem the size and quality they desire for a reasonable price.
