BT642 Chrysoberyl var. Alexandrite

A nice little thumbnail example of an alexandrite sixling.  The color in the pictures is not representative at all-- I justpiced the photos that showed the form of the crystal best. For whatever reason the camera exaggerates colors (notably purple) that you will not see nearly as strongly with the naked eye. 

So: in normal incandescent lighting it appears a dull purplish-grayish green, the green color becomes more intense and grass like under daylight or daylight equivalent lighting.
