***Alexandrite’s most magical feature is that it changes from a brilliant green in daylight to a beautiful red in artificial light, amazingly representing Imperial Russia’s colors. This color-change can be so distinct that it really has been attributed to magic. Certainly it fired everyone’s imagination as the only stone that possessed both Royal colors at the same time. And alexandrite’s mystique is magnified by the fact that its green/red color-change has actually been named the “Alexandrite Effect”.***
