Natural Alexandrite Facet Rough: gem-grade natural alexandrite crystals
Alexandrite is the rare color change variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. Chrysoberyl can also form with microscopic tube-like natural inclusions that create a chatoyant effect when light shines on it. When chatoyant chysoberyl is properly oriented and cut into cabochon gemstones with a rounded upper surface, this chatoyancy is visible as a bright line passing back and forth over the surface of the gem, and it is popularly known as cats eye chrysoberyl. When a cats eye chrysoberyl gem also shows a natural color change from green under daylight to reddish hues under incandescent light, then it is known as a cats eye alexandrite gemstone.
