Today I want to talk to you about the Alexandrite gemstone, and why it's so beautiful. This gemstone has captivated the human imagination for years, and years. The stone possesses a rare beauty, it's rare, and it has unique spiritual properties. 

Make no doubt, this is a powerful gemstone. This gemstone is often referred to, as the gemstone of the empoerors. Some have called it the stone of destiny. This is a rare and fascinating mineral which displays unique color changing properties. It's one of the most sought-after gemstones in the world. 

It's Origins

The story of this gemstone began in the Ural mountains of Russia in 1830. It was first discovered by the Finnish Mineralogist Nils Gustaf. It was mistaken for an emerald, due to its green color. Further analysis revealed that it was a new mineral. It was named Alexandrite, in honor of the future Tsar Alexander II. The fact that the color of Alexandrite changes from green to red-  the colors of the Russian imperial flag, added to the mystique of the stone. Needless to say, it's a symbol of national pride.
