Alexandrite Oracle
by: Anonymous

The diamond accents or the numbers or the fact that it's 14K stamped on the metal won't tell you if this stone is a natural alexandrite or a synthetic. There is synthetic alexandrite available on the market and only an expert can tell the difference. The stone has to be tested at a gem lab. The price per carat if it does turn out to be natural alexandrite will be money well spent.

Due to the presence of oxide of chromium, alexandrite appears dull grass-green by daylight but by electric light it appears yellowish or reddish yellow and by soft candle-light it appears reddish.

Here is an interesting thread with links to photos, etc about alexandrite.
