Cultured (Lab Grown) Alexandrite


We submitted a sample for independent grading to show
 the quality of these lab grown Alexandrites

Top quality mined alexandrites over 1ct are among the most valuable of natural colored gemstones.  This is because their creation in the earth requires the combining of two minerals not usually found together, plus the absence of a third common one....thus, natural top quality alexandrite is hard to find, and expensive when you do come across one. 

Alexandrite has been highly prized both due to its rarity but just as equally for its beauty - it features a unique color change phenomenon whereby it shows a bluish-green in daylight, and a purple-red in artificial light.   

Thus, we are pleased to offer a limited selection of fine, lab-grown alexandrite at a mere $89/ct.   These are grown in the lab via a floating pull method, and feature large sizes with the requisite stunning color change feature. 


" I love it! I took the stone to my jeweler for mounting into a ring, and he commented that it was a fabulous stone!

It is a beautiful deep purple in artificial light, and it turns an awesome blue in natural light - wonderous! Thanks!

- Customer Testimonial on our Lab Grown Alexandrite


   

Our cultured (lab-grown) alexandrites are unique in several respects:

  • These are *real* alexandrite, not imitation...they are simply grown in the lab instead of mined.
  • Unlike naturals, which have widely varying color and clarity, we offer only gem quality (loupe-clean) cultured alexandrite with intense coloration.

The result is that our Cultured Alexandrite let you enjoy the beauty and splendor of real alexandrite in sizes, clarity and color saturation that would otherwise be unaffordable.  

We are offering our Cultured Alexandrite at $89/ct  We have a small selection of alexandrite in stock, but for other shapes and sizes, we will cut the desired stones based upon special orders.
