Crystal Properties: Alexandrite is a variety of Chrysoberyl, a beryllium aluminum oxide. Its crystal pattern is orthorhombic, and it sometimes forms in hexagonal-looking twinned crystals.
Metaphysical Information: Alexandrites have a connection to Source energies of the higher dimensions, where the atmosphere is most rapturous. However, one must be careful to do more than just enjoy the happy feelings. Alexandrite’s window to the ecstasies of the higher realms can and should be the springboard to inner exploration.
