Alexandrite has a remarkable ability to appear green in daylight and plum red in the warmer tones of firelight or candlelight (incandescent) in the evening. Long associated with Russian royalty, was discovered in 1833 by a Czar. It is rare because the conditions to form a colour changing gemstone with this composition is difficult to create. Also, Alexandrites is natural and never treated this is to ensure the colour change effect stays.
Its rarity is a result of its unlikely chemical makeup. Alexandrite can only form when aluminium and beryllium combine with trace elements like iron, titanium and, most importantly, chromium. On rare occasion, vanadium may also be present. The unlikelihood of the rare element chromium being in the right place to combine with aluminium and beryllium under exactly the right conditions to create alexandrite is what makes it so rare and valuable.
