Alexandrite is a gorgeous gem with strong attractive energy. This stone became famous for its color change effect. The brighter it is in a gem, the more valuable and attractive it is. True alexandrites are quite rare in nature, which increases the demand for this gem.
This type of jewelry has the characteristic property that is able to switch its color from green tones to reddish tones, depending on the lighting.
Description of alexandrite:
In jewelry, alexandrites are rarely larger than 5 carats due to their high rarity.

Place of mining:
Until the end of the twentieth century, alexandrite was mined only in the Urals. But
now, alexandrite is mined in Tanzania, Brazil, India, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe.
How to wear alexandrite?
Alexandrite is a symbol of happy love. This stone is also considered a talisman for those people who wish to develop the gift of providence. The gem is recommended to be worn only by people with a strong spirit, while it can bring only misfortune to passive and lazy individuals. According to the zodiac sign, the mineral is great for Gemini, Scorpio, Aries, and Pisces.
Basic rules for wearing and caring for alexandrite jewelry:
The gem is greatly combined with both white and yellow gold;
Jewelry with this gem should be protected from cosmetics and household chemicals. Otherwise, they can harm it.
Jewelry with alexandrite can be washed with hot water (but not boiling!) and soap. The stone can be dried with a lint-free cloth. As for the storage of alexandrite jewelry, they should be kept in a separate box.
You cannot wear someone else's alexandrite jewelry and even try it on. There is an opinion that it is possible to "take away" someone's destiny in this way. And it is not always fortunate.
If important negotiations are ahead, then you should put the ring on your middle finger. This will give you confidence, calmness, and help to avoid mistakes.
Legend has it that the gem witnessed the murder of Abel by Cain. That is why there is a sign that if he becomes scarlet, then some kind of trouble awaits one of his relatives.
In any case, believing the legends is everyone's business. As you know, any stone has a magical property to keep in mind information and absorb energy. Therefore, if you think that alexandrite will bring misfortune, then it will be so. Correct wearing of jewelry with alexandrite will allow you to reveal the stone's entire energy potential and direct it in a favorable direction to humans.
How to distinguish real alexandrite from fake?
In the world, there is a list of minerals capable of changing colors. One of these is garnet, but you cannot find blue-violet shades in it. Also, uncertified jewelry houses can sell you imitations made from cheaper stones. But as for the synthetic analog, it is the same mineral, only not created by nature but grown "in a test tube." Just like natural alexandrite, a synthetic analog is a type of chrysoberyl, the main pigment of which is chromium. The same characteristics as density, hardness, a refractive index of light, and others are observed in the stone. However, due to its origin, its value is somewhat lower.
There are a few valuable recommendations to determine the natural alexandrite from the fake one:
It is difficult to find stones of more than 3 carats, they are considered rare (1-2 carats is already a large stone).
For example, if you take the same 3-carat stone, then its price cannot be fewer than 10 thousand dollars.
Color must be from deep tones of green to red, bright with a yellowish tint. If you noticed bubbles with air while examining a mineral with a magnifying glass, then this stone is not alexandrite. And a stone that is too clean can be artificial.
A natural gem has a beautiful structure, but it will not be as pure and flawless as a synthetic one.
