A type of quartz unique for its color change in different types of light. In natural light, it looks blue-green, but under indoor lights it appears reddish-purple. Natural alexandrite with good color has high value because mining of it has all but stopped, and there are many synthetic versions on the market. Synthetic color-change sapphire is sometimes mistaken for alexandrite.
