Alexandrite is a rare variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. The man who discovered the stone first mistook it for Emerald and was shocked to find its “Alexandrite Effect”, a optical phenomenon in which the gem exhibits a change in color when viewed under different types of light.
Alexandrite is a great stone for healing and transforming the physical body from ailments and disease. It is also encourages positive attitudes toward areas of life that may seem mundane. Keeping Alexandrite with you is a great way to get out of a rut.
