Healing alexandrite stone Definition
Alexandrite stone is certainly one of the rarest stones. Named after the emperor of Russia Tsar Alexander II (1818-1881). The stone was found in the Ural mountains of Russia in 1834 by French mineralist Nils Gustaf.
Gustaf mistook the stone for an emerald. Legends say that he took to a campfire during the night. He was mesmerized by how the stone would change color based on how the firelight that would reflect on the stone.
Alexandrite is the birthstone for people born between March 21st and April 19th (Aries), April 20th and May 21st (Taurus) and October 23rd and November 22nd (Scorpio). That being the case, Alexandrite can be a great addition to your jewelry collection.
