This shimmering alexandrite has an incredible magnificent luster! It is brilliant, fiery and full of life!
I'm dealing with alexandrites more than 17 years and this is one of the best specimens I have ever seen!
The unique feature of this alexandrite is a STRONG COLOR CHANGE which is the main factor defining the value of this gemstone. The stone is easily changing color from deep green to purple, which makes it a rare collector's gem. The color change is so strong that it can be easily observed not only in a candle light, but any incandescent light like any yellow low watt electric lamp's light. The gorgeous center alexandrite is remarkably clean which makes it very rare because alexandrite belong to the category 2 in GIA grading system. Type 2 means that natural alexandrite unlike lab grown alexandrite almost always has many inclusions. Therefore clean stones are very rare and command great premium prices.
