The unique feature of this ring is that 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. This alexandrite has only one tiny dot on the surface, hardly seen by an unaided eye. It is certanly does not affect the transparency and magnificient luster of the stone. 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 lavender purple, which makes it a rare collector's gem.
