Alexandrite is said to stimulate pleasure and love. It is also used as a lucky stone. Alexandrite is a very rare stone. It was named after Alexander II of Russia as it was found on his Coming of Age Day.
Alexandrite is an unusual crystal; it can appear to change colour! The crystal is a from of Chrysoberyl, and its particular chemical construction means that it reacts to light at different rates, so in one light it can appear green and in another light it can even be red.. (most extreme changes are seen in the finest quality of the stones)
