Alexandrite Earrings

  

June’s Birthstone Wearing your birthstone is supposed to bring you good luck! Birthstone jewelry is a great gift to give; either to yourself, or to someone special. The birthstones for June are Pearl, Moonstone, and Alexandrite. I’ve decided to bring you a little info about Alexandrite ; I think it is one of the most gorgeous, and fascinating gemstones out there! Alexandrite is as beautiful as it is rare. This stone is named after the Russian Czar, Alexander II, for it was discovered the day the future czar came of age, in April 1834. Isn’t that a great birthday present, having a gem named after you!!! What is it that makes alexandrite so beautiful, and so rare? It’s beauty comes from the ability to change colors in different light sources. Natural sunlight makes alexandrite appear a bluish green, and in indoor lighting, it appears purplish/red. Alexandrite’s rarity comes from being only mined in a few places in the world where all the right elements came together to form this lovely stone. Alexandrite from Russia is believed to be the most beautiful, and is the most valuable. Most alexandrite jewelry is made using synthetic, or lab grown stones. These are almost as pretty as the real ones. Good stones will exhibit a color change. The alexandrite stones I use are a purple color inside, and a teal color in sunlight. Very pretty! Throughout history, many gemstones have been attributed to mythological and healing lore. Individuals believed, and still do, that wearing certain stones achieve desired affects. Alexandrite is known as the “Good Omen Stone”. It may also assist one’s ability to center the self, build self-esteem, and improve on a person’s ability to experience joy. It is also believed to inspire creativity and the imagination.
