Oval Gem Alexandrite

Monday, May 23rd, 2011


Totally natural, beautiful, clean and superbly well cut, this oval cut gem Alexandrite exhibits excellent color change and brilliance. It has a great face up for its weight, looking much larger than expected, an important value added when dealing in such rare stones.

Often cutters will hide a lot of weight in bulged pavilions, since the loss of even a few points really affects the final asking price of a stone. Larger fine Alexandrites are super rare and a true investment whether mounted and worn for all to admire, or securely put away in a collectors vault.

A New Find: Color Change Garnet from Kenya

Friday, February 19th, 2010

colr change garnet kenya
Gems with phenomena have always held our fascination. When thinking of “fine color change”, Alexandrite is what comes to mind. What makes this particular find of Color Change Garnet from Kenya special, is that among them are some stones that duplicate the color change of Alexandrite. The other types of color change garnet  mined there also have very good color change, but in a different range of colors, very beautiful in their own right. These types usually are a lot less expensive and more plentiful.

I had a few jewelers and dealers look at some nice stones I was displaying in Tucson, saying that if not told; by the color change alone they would have thought for sure these were Alexandrites.
