This stunning, rare stone is named after the Tsar Alexandra II of Russia as it was discovered in the Ural Mountains on his coming of age on 29th April, 1834.
Alexandrite is claimed to be able to magically change your life for the better. Put it in candlelight and it’ll metamorphose from bright green to red.
The crystal is said to help raise self-esteem. Healers use it for problems with the nervous system, spleen and pancreas.
It’s mainly found in Brazil and Sri Lanka.
