Alexandrite is one of the traditional birthstones for the month of June. It is found in Africa, Brazil and Sri Lanka, and is an exceedingly rare gem.
Alexandrites are beautiful stones with a unique twist – they change colour! In normal daylight this gem has a pretty bluish green colour. Indoors under incandescent bulbs, it turns more purple and red. The more intense the colour change, the more valuable the gem will be.
