Alexandrite is a variety of chrysoberyl, with an excellent hardness of 8.5 on the Mohs scale, placing it right behind sapphire and ruby. Alexandrite is rare because of its chemical composition. Chrysoberyl is colored by traces iron and titanium, but alexandrite is also colored by chromium, which gives it the emerald green hue in daylight.
I love Gem Select!! I have ordered MANY items from them and I have been pleasantly suprised by every single one! And the shipping is WAY faster than I ever expect. Their products are both highest quality and best price. I will continue to regularly order from them...forever!
I appreciate the how GemSelect does business, and will continue to recommend it to other jewelry makers. The photographs of the stones are excellent, making selection easy. The matched spinels from my last order were extremely good and the violet sapphire from my most recent is very nice. All were shipped astoundingly quickly. The customer service is also very prompt and professional.
I have had no issues with GemSelect. My postal service 'lost' my previous shipment. I appreciated that Gem
Select worked with me (I was on an extended business trip and wouldn't have been able to accept the shipment) and refunded my purchase promptly. Thumbs up.
