A fine alexandrite is a wonder to behold. The very rare color change variety of the mineral chrysoberyl, alexandrite was first discovered in Russia's Ural Mountains in the 1830's and its sources remain extremely limited today. Feast your eyes on this very "gemmy" 2.71 carat, trillion cut alexandrite. What makes this a very fine alexandrite is the combination of strong color change, a high degree of clarity and the exceptional cutting of this beautiful trillion cut. All of these attributes combined equals a truly magnificent gemstone worthy of any elite gem collection or special piece of fine jewelry. This quality of alexandrite is extremely rare and becoming more so. Senior Buyer Jay Boyle says, "when Tim and I saw this fine gem, we didn't hesitate. We quickly launched into negotiations with the seller and bought this beauty at a great savings." It is a benefit to have a Craig Lynch appraisal for 25% more than our everyday purchase price. Jay predicts fine alexandrite may well keep going up in price as availability declines in the marketplace. Don't hesitate to make this stunner yours today!

Alexandrite is the rare color-change variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. Its rarity is a result of its unlikely chemical makeup. Alexandrite displays the color change phenomenon because trace amounts of Cr3+ has substituted for Al3+ in the crystal lattice. This substation rarely takes place making alexandrite extraordinarily coveted.
