Gorgeous and Unique! Natural Alexandrite, far and away the rarest of all of the Birthstones (far more rare than Diamonds, Rubies or Emeralds). They are so hard to come by, that there are only a handful of reputable dealers in the entire country that carry these beauties. Our preferred supplier for these stones offers accurately graded stones at very reasonable prices.
A word of Caution: As is the case with so many gemstones these days, there are a lot of fakes and chemically-treated synthetics that people are trying to pass off as genuine Alexandrite. Please do your due diligence before purchasing something at unrealistically low prices. Natural Alexandrite is a truly rare gemstone and thus, quite pricey.
Gemstone Variations: Please note that these are natural gemstones; as such, they may vary in color, marbling, variegation or inclusions and may contain some minor imperfections.
Notes: Items in images may appear larger than actual size. The drop cap design may vary depending on product availability.
