These ovals are beautiful gem stones of about 2.5cts each.Lab grown Alexandrite, the color change is from an Amethyst like purple to a blue to reddish wine color. This is not a CZ, glass or glass filled natural material, this material has all the same properties as natural Alexandrite I believe these are 2.5 cts each but am not certain as I have owned this since 1990. I had intended to have these set as earrings.
Natural alexandrite is very rare and quite stunning. These factors help create a market for synthetic alexandrite as an option for jewelry. Synthetic alexandrite is real alexandrite created in a lab.
This blue to purple color change indicates a hydrothermal lab-grown alexandrite. It’s a real alexandrite, but created in a lab. The stone has the same physical and chemical properties as a natural alexandrite. It was just made in a lab, not inside the Earth.
