ALEXANDRITE


So, picture this: you've got a gem that's like a magical chameleon. It's called Alexandrite, and it's basically the superhero of the gem world. This rock can pull off a jaw-dropping transformation from Emerald by day to Ruby by night. In the sunlight, it's all green and fresh like a lush meadow, and then, under incandescent light, it turns into a rich, velvety red. It's like having two gems in one!

Now, here's a little history lesson for you. Alexandrite made its dazzling debut in the 1830s, right in the heart of the Ural Mountains of Russia. It was Count Lev Alekseevich Perovskii, in 1834, who had the genius idea to name this gem after the soon-to-be Czar of Russia, Alexander II. You see, back in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Czars were basically the gold standard for royal grandeur. They were the Beyoncé and Jay-Z of their time. And when you combine beauty, a splash of celebrity, and a whole lot of rarity, you've got yourself a gem that's shrouded in mystique and adored by the masses.

If you ever get your hands on one of these Alexandrite gems, you've pretty much struck gold in the jewellery department. 😉💚❤️💎
