Emerald by day, ruby by night. Alexandrite was first discovered in a Russian emerald mine in 1831. While it is name and fame belong to Russia its origins are spread around the globe. It is located many places, from Brazil to Tanzania, India to Ceylon, and Madagascar to Burma. The color change has fascinated humans for years.

This behemoth Alexandrite weighs in at 18.03 cts.; measuring 15.87x13.54x10.19mm. This stone brilliantly shows what Ceylon has to offer in the world of rare and extravagant gems. For today's attainable material this stone is profoundly clean for it's extreme size.  The color change is rated as a prominent to strong, (80%-90%) by AGL, earning this stone a Classic Ceylon distinction.
