6mm Created Alexandrite Pendant

Alexandrite is an extremely rare gemstone and a fairly modern one at that, so it doesn't share the ancient history and lore of other gems due to the fact that it was only discovered in the 1800s, and for much of the 1900s there were no new discoveries of the mineral, so it became very rare. Then in 1987, a new find was made in Brazil and then another in 1993 between Tanzania and Mozambique.

Due to the gemstone's rarity, many types of imitations and synthetics have been on the market since the early 1900s. Fake alexandrite from the 1920s was made out of the mineral corundum and then laced with other minerals to create the color-change effect. Synthetic alexandrite has been lab created since the 1960s, and it's a very costly process, so this type of created alexandrite can still be quite costly. Alexandrite is also the birthstone for June birthdays as well as the stone for the 55th anniversary.

Crafted in 14kt yellow gold, this pendant is home to one lab-created Alexandrite. This created alexandrite measures to be an estimated 1.10 carats, and it displays a captivating array of blue to purple to green, depending on the lighting. This pendant would do well on any style gold chain.
