GIA Certed Fine Natural Alexandrite
1.00ct Oval Natural GIA Certed Alexandrite - We were fortunate to find one Alexandrite that met our criteria for inventory: Clean, Decent Cut, Sparkle, Eye Clean, Very Fine Color Change and an Affordable Price! This changes from a Green/Bluish Green to a Purple as noted in the accompanying GIA Cert. In 36 years in the gemstone business, we have only had a handful of larger fine quality Alexandrite such as this. Again, the 2017 Tucson Show had very dark (almost black) Alexandrite, very poorly cut or included material, selling at high prices. Similar Alex to this newly acquired piece were non-existent and we wouldn't consider obtaining that lower quality for our inventory; plus the pricing was incredibly high, making this Alex not only an outstanding example, but also outstanding in price (way below the wholesale asking price of those we didn't look twice at). Alexandrite is one of those gemstones that is difficult to obtain accurate color photos. We obtained a good photo of the green, but decent photos of the purple were not to be. As always, should you purchase this Alexandrite, if you are not happy for any reason, you have our 100% Customer Satifaction Guarantee as well as our Lifetime Guarantee - see our 'Our Guarantees' link on the banner that appears on the top and bottom of all our pages!

large natural 1.56ct alexandrite with wonderful color change
Large Wonderful 1.65ct Cushion Shaped Natural Alexandrite - Great Color Change from Blue Green to Purple; eye clean, well cut and exceedingly fine in every way compared to most Alexandrites seen on the market. This rare gemstone is not just over the magic carat weight of 1ct, but it is even over 1.5cts! In Tucson 2016, we didn't see anything quite like this, as most Alexs are poorly cut, shallow, weak color change (or one is better than the other), high prices, etc. Price is below wholesale as seen in The Guide, Nov/Dec 2014!

natural chrysoberyl cat's eye
Chrysoberyl Cat's Eye, 3.28ct - great size for jewelry, no blemishes, the exact color and sharp centered eye that one wants in this gemstone! Note not only the sharp line, but because there were other lights available during photography, one can see an actual eye with the secondary line on the top. Milk/Honey affect clearly seen also. Just a wonderful example and the largest/finest Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl we have had in inventory in 35+ years! Below the wholesale price of the 2014 The Guide - as many of our fine gemstones.

chrysoberyl crystal
11.09ct Chrysoberyl Crystal from Ratnapura, Sri Lanka. Color is more of a yellow and it seems as if one can probably facet a gemstone from this piece - but it is a nice crystal with natural crystal faces on all surfaces. This displays half of the flower like crystal structure one expects from Chrysoberyl, but it probably grew next to another crystal and therefore didn't obtain the expected crystal habit, but it does have half the expecte crystalization and if one looks at it carefully, it is an entire crystal with all the expected faces considering of where it had probably been growing. It is difficult to get a good color rendition as well as to show the crystal structure of this piece. (egaj-11-12) $625
