June's Alexandrite

Here we celebrate June's birthstone - Alexandrite. The most sensational feature about the stone Alexandrite is its surprising ability to change its color. Green or bluish-green in daylight, Alexandrite turns a soft shade of red, purplish-red or raspberry red in incandescent light. This unique optical characteristic makes it one of the most valuable gemstones of all, especially in fine qualities. Here we explore this wonderful stone and its many colors with a variety of supplies for the artist. Enjoy!
