Alexandrite is a very rare variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. When the light source changes from daylight to incandescent light, alexandrite's color changes from bluish green to reddish purple. Synthetic alexandrite looks like the natural gemstone, it has the same chemical properties, hardness, and density as a natural alexandrite. The first synthetic alexandrite was created in the 1920s.
