7.02ct heart cut alexandrite from Sri Lanka.
This alexandrite is Yellow-Green changing to Brown-Yellow under warm lighting.
The color change is medium to strong, turning a distinct orange as warm light intensifies.
The green alexandrite is cut very well, even for a heart cut. Hence its color change appears strong, in a heart thereabouts the size of a thumb.
This alexandrite has a good depth which is critical for a heart cut's fire.
You will appreciate this when the stone is set. If the heart cut (of any gem) is not cut with sufficient depth, the stone will lack internal fire.
Extroverted or introverted, this stone is offered in a rarer heart shape, a mirror to an autumnal palette.
