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.
Used Gem Select 3 times. There was an issue once which was quickly settled in my favour. Other time I had a complex request for shipping the order to multiple ppl and they did so quickly and accurately. Accurate goods description, good customer service.
