Alexandrite Gem Origin

Alexandrite displays a myriad of colours under ambient and natural daylight lighting. The colour range varies between green and reddish-purple. The Alexandrite that we featured is one of the most sought-after gems owing to its rarity and qualities. Alexandrite is the most valuable Chrysoberyl gemstone that is sourced from Russia, Brazil, Madagascar, and Sri Lanka. The per-carat price of fine quality Alexandrite is comparable to or even higher than emeralds and rubies. This is because such precious gems are extremely rare and usually available in only small carat sizes.

Birthstone for the month of June

Like all natural gemstones, Alexandrite comes with natural inclusions too. This helps gemologists distinguish between a synthetic and natural gem. Not all alexandrite stones are transparent. Most of them are cloudy or opaque, due to their inclusion. Alexandrite is the birthstone for the month of June along with moonstone and pearl. In comparison to the rest of the birthstones, Alexandrite gem generally have a much superior durability in hardness which recommended for daily wear.

Due to its rarity, acquiring a natural real alexandrite gem with authentication certification is as important. When browsing through online, you can see prices of alexandrite gem can be sold in extremely low price as there are many lab grown alexandrite.

Colour Changing & Shape

Not all Alexandrite gem exhibit a distinct change in colour. There is a variation from green to reddish-purple. It is quite tough to find quality alexandrite gems these days, especially the ones that change their colour from green to red distinctly. In order to retain their rarity, most of such rare gems are not cut proportionally for retaining the maximum carat weight. With a poorly cut alexandrite gem it generally affect the brilliance and colour changing effort too.

At GIOIA Fine Jewellery, we have a variety of cuts and shapes in our collection. You can choose from the oval, round or even heart-shape. These stones are difficult to source and usually demand additional cutting work to achieve a well-balanced brilliance.
