About Alexandrite

Alexandrite is believed by some to strengthen the wearer’s intuition in critical situations, and thus help one find new ways forward in situations where logic does not provide the answer. Some crystal healers also attribute Alexandrite with the ability to aid creativity and inspire imagination.

Today, Alexandrite, along with Pearl and Moonstone, is a birthstone for those born in June.
