This is Alexandrite, it’s also called “emerald by day, ruby by night”
It changes colour based on whether the light source is from the sun or from a candle.
It does this because Alexandrite strongly absorbs yellow light due to chromium ions in its crystal structure, leaving the other colours behind. Light from the Sun emits all colours, but it peaks in the green, and our eyes are most sensitive to green, so in Sunlight Alexandrite is green.
Incandescent lights are things like candles and filament light bulbs. They also emit all colours of light, but they peak far, far into the red, so there’s not nearly as much green or blue, so under those, Alexandrite is red. 
Gemstones are awesome.


Putting this stone in my class ring was hands down the best decision I’ve ever made.

Alright. Just how rich does your desktop have to be? I picked these in the Latour garden before doctoring them to my taste. He had far too many … Might print it into a toiletries bag
