The Magical Color-Changing Alexandrite

by Schmidt Jewelers
Alexandrite is June's birthstone. It is an amazing birthstone because it changes color from day to night. This change happens because, during the creation of alexandrite, aluminum elements combine with chromium. This union absorbs certain wavelengths within the light spectrum, causing the stone to appear a different color when viewed in natural or artificial light. The most precious alexandrite appears green in the day and red at night. Other color change variations include yellow or pink during the day to red at night.
