Although there is an article warning about not paying for Alexandrite when its color changing chrysoberyl, but it does not really tell the price difference or how to tell the difference between the gems.
I believe I’ve made the mistake of buying gems labeled Alexandrite (even tho the vender had “certificates”), when it really was something else. I’m not sure what to describe what I bought; slight green gems that changes color only under UV light to bright pink/red. I bought it before I joined Gem Society so I didn’t know.
- What gem did I buy?
- What is the price difference? (compared to alexandrite)
