Alexandrite was first discovered in 1831 in an emerald mining region of the Ural Mountains in Russia. The name comes from Tsar Alexander II of Russia, on whose birthday the gem was discovered in that country. It was named "alexandrite" in his honor by the mineralogist Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld.
It is an interesting coincidence that the Russian national colors are green and red, which may have originated from this gem. Genuine extremely rare nice alexandrite material has been polished into these lovely smooth rondelles, they are of celadon green color with lots of chatoyant gold and cream cats eye effect! You'll get the strand you see! COLOR: Celadon Green and Cream Cat's Eye. Please request an invoice from us if the total seem to be not right.
