GEOLOGICAL

Chrysoberyl is a rare beryllium aluminium oxide mineral (with no relation to Beryl). Its main commercial use is as a gem in jewellery, owing to its exceptional hardness (the third hardest mineral on the Mohs scale – read about the hardness scale on Mystic Crystals ‘How To Identify A Crystal: Hardness‘ blog post). It’s also a highly collectable stone, especially well-formed crystals and those displaying chatoyancy. Chrysoberyl occurs in yellow, green to brown hues, although rare blue shades have been found. In general, Chrysoberyl crystals are seldom bigger than 5 carats (approx 1 gram).

Alexandrite is a super rare variety of Chrysoberyl that changes colour in different light. In daylight, the stone appears one colour, and in incandescent light, it appears to be another colour. The most distinctive specimens have a green to turquoise colour in daylight and change to a red to purple hue in incandescent light.

Alexandrite is only found in very small deposits. It was discovered in Russia in the late 1800’s, and named for the Tsar, Alexander II. This original deposit is empty, but small deposits have since been discovered in various locations around the world, including Brazil, India, China, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and others.
