Discovered in Russia in the early 1800s, alexandrite is named for Tsar Alexander II and was the national gemstone of tsarist Russia. With an ability to change color depending on the light source, alexandrite is a very unique and beautiful gemstone. Stones may exhibit red-violet to green, blue to purple, or bluish-purple to pink color ranges.

Alexandrite is not enhanced, and has a Mohs hardness rating of 8.5, making it a very durable and trouble-free gemstone.
