Zandrite® is a stunning, man-made glass that is specially formulated by combining rare earth elements such as neodymium, lanthanum and cerium to create its dramatic color change and color shift properties. Many of these rare earth elements are responsible for the wide array of colors seen in some natural gems such as apatite and bastnaesite. It was only after many years of experimentation (and much trial and error) that Zandrite® came into being. As the purple-green color change variety mimics the appearance and phenomenal property of extremely rare and expensive alexandrite, late Jewelry Television Co-Founder Jerry Sisk selected the name Zandrite® to describe the 100% color change exhibited by the green-pink, blue-purple and blue-lavender color combinations. The cranberry-magenta color combination delights with its intriguing color shift property. Additionally, some color combinations, such as the blue-purple and cranberry varieties, boast strong magnetism due to their neodymium content. Acquired exclusively by and found only at JTV, explore the colorful world of Zandrit® today!

Zandrite® is the brand name for a man-made stone that is highly photochromic. It is a chemically doped variety of glass, whose name is an allusion to alexandrite, an expensive naturally occurring color-change variety of chrysoberyl. Zandrite® is specially formulated by combining rare earth elements (like neodymium, lanthanum, and cerium) to create a stunning color change property. A scientist was the first to create, then realize the potential of this stunning gem (completely by accident).
