Chatham Created Alexandrite
For centuries, fine gemstones have been valued for their magnificent color. Unique among such stones is the color-shifting magic of Alexandrite. In sunlight it appears deep teal-green; indoors it glows a brilliant raspberry-purple.
First discovered in 1830, high in the mountains of Russia, this spectacular gem was named in honor of the young Czar Alexander II. The finest natural Alexandrite still comes from the region, though prime specimens are rare and very expensive. In 1972, the Chatham Laboratories developed a process for growing perfect Alexandrite crystals in a controlled, environmentally responsible manner. Chatham Created Alexandrite has precisely the same properties and color-change characteristics as naturally-occurring Alexandrite, at a fraction of the cost.
