Lab-created Alexandrite represents a rare stone often referred to as the gem of aficionados. Some call it the “emerald by day, ruby by night.” Alexandrite is the very rare color-change variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. Originally discovered in Russia’s Ural Mountains in the 1830s, it’s now found in Sri Lanka, East Africa, and Brazil, but fine material is exceptionally rare and valuable.
Although this Alexandrite pendant stone is lab-created, it still carries with it very similar qualities to those gemstones produced naturally by mother earth.
Lab-created gemstones are simply the same combination of minerals placed together in the right kind of high pressured environment to grow a crystal in a short period of time. Where a genuine stone from the earth may take many lifetimes to create, a lab can reproduce the same results with perfection within weeks.
The results are a gemstone that is indiscernible by the naked eye and is flawless in every way. Only a highly trained gemstone specialist, gemologist, or stone dealer would be able to tell the difference.
The benefits of lab creation are a reduction in cost. Larger karat size and a more durable stone without fractures, rough areas, or other flaws that would be included in a stone costing man thousands of dollars or more.
The metals used for the sun pendant are of the highest quality, beautiful, and equivalent to 18 karat gold. Charles gave his creation a name, he called this gold, “Alchemia Zero Karat Gold.”
Not only are you getting a beautiful Alexandrite pendant, but also the glamour and beauty of gold.
