Alexandrite is one of the 3 options for June birthstone, and it’s a really cool one: it can appear in 2 colours, depending on what kind of light it is being viewed in.
In cool light such as outdoors or fluorescent light, it’ll be blue-ish green-ish, and in incandescent or candle light (I.e. ‘warm’ light), it will appear red-ish purple-ish. Isn’t that amazing?
Let me tell you why, and give you other facts about this fascinating gem.
