From Wikipedia: "Most gemstones described as synthetic alexandrite are actually simulated alexandrite - synthetic corundum laced with vanadium to produce the color change. This alexandrite like sapphire material has been around for almost 100 years. The material shows a characteristic purple-mauve color change which differs from alexandrite because there is never any green. The stones are very clean and may be available in large sizes."
Alexandrite is normally a lab-grown stone, however it has the same physical and chemical properties as a natural alexandrite., which is VERY rare now. Alexandrite, natural and synthetic, is a form of chrysoberyl that is known for its ability to display a change of color (also known as the alexandrite effect). In certain light the stone appears purple, mimicking an amethyst, whereas in other light the stone may flash blue, red, and even green tones. Alexandrite is a symbol of royal power and has often been used as a guardian stone. This stone also supports longevity, creativity, and willpower. Alexandrite is often used in chakra work, and is though to balance the nervous system. It is thought to soothe inflammation.
