Alexandrite pendant

Alexandrite pendant, originally uploaded by rmrayner.
Alexandrite is an ultra rare and expensive stone, but I was presented with only one trilliant cut stone so was at a loss what to design it into... a pendant or brooch seemed the only likely choices. Photographed for our website and portfolio.

Named after The Czar Alexander II. Chromium makes it appear as two colours. Natural or fluorescent light makes it green & tungsten makes it red.
