Alexandrite gems are named after Czar Alexander II. Found originally in Russia's Ural Mountains, Alexandrite is often known as, "the most expensive gemstone in the world." Why so sought after? Alexandrite has the ability to change colors in different light. In sunlight, the stone reflects a blue-green color, but exposed to incandescent light, the color changes to strawberry red.
After years of research and experimentation, Lannyte was able to grow Alexandrite in a laboratory. These gemstones are truly laboratory-grown Alexandrite and not the cheaper corundum simulation gemstones. Lannyte Alexandrite produces the same color changes as that of its natural counterpart but are available at a fraction of the cost. So be sure to ask an authorized Lannyte dealer
for laboratory-grown Alexandrite.
