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.

Sometimes stock picture may be used when there are more than one stone that look similar. In this case, the picture will be similar to the gems; but there may be individual variations.
