The unique feature of this alexandrite is a strong color change which is the main factor defining the value of this gemstone. The alexandrite has a tiny inclusion coming to surface. It is certainly does not affect the durablility and overall beauty of the gemstone. Gemologists consider such mineral inclusions to be the proof of the natural origin of alexandrite. The stone is easily changing color from green to gorgeous 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.
