Alexandrite, Cats Eye, 5.53 CT

We have for you in our collection this fascinating 5.53-carat color-change alexandrite from Sri Lanka (Ceylon), which turns from a brownish-green in sunlight or fluorescent light to a pink-brown in incandescent light. Its striking qualities are all natural, as certified by the American Gemological Laboratories, with no evidence of heat treatment. What’s more, this Sri Lankan alexandrite also displays another phenomenon known as the “cat’s-eye effect.” Called chatoyancy, this occurs when light reflects from the alexandrite’s needle-like inclusions to form a thin band across the dome of its cabochon cut that resembles a cat’s narrow pupil.
