Alexandrite and Moonstone Lariat Necklace
Our alexandrite and moonstone lariat necklace is made with a pear cut lab grown alexandrite gemstone that drapes through a sterling silver infinity link. Designed in a simple wrap around style with tiny moonstones sparkling at both ends. Alexandrite stones will change color under different lighting. A great gift idea for June birthdays.
Alexandrite is a pleochroic gemstone which means the stone exhibits a color change when viewed at different angles or under different lighting such as daylight and incandescent lighting. The pleochrism effect is caused by the way the gemstone absorbs rays of light.
There are two types of lab grown alexandrite: chrysoberyl and corundum. Our alexandrite jewelry collection is created with alexandrite lab corundum that has been infused with either chromium or vanadium to provide the color change. The stones will change from a dark purple to a violet-pink purple to a bluish purple.
Alexandrite stones are said to help with self control and discipline, helping the wearer strive for excellence. Russian legend believes alexandrite stones promote good luck, fortune and love.
Moonstone is a natural gemstone in the feldspar family of minerals that is well known for its blue shimmering flashes of color. This shimmering effect is called adularescence. Moonstone has a unique crystal structure that creates this optical phenomena. Alternating layers of albite inclusions mixed with layers of orthoclase create a whitish-blue sheen of color as light enters the stone and bounces back. Some moonstone will display tiny dots of rainbow colors.
Moonstone can be found in many places around the world, with the most popular deposits in India and Sri Lanka. It is the birthstone for those born in June.

"I ordered this as a gift for my sister's birthday (June gemstones) and it was shipped directly to her. She loves it, said it was beautiful but we were both even more surprised with how nicely it was packaged and shipped. The shipping was very fast actually arrived a day early which was perfect. My sister said it came with a little scented candle, jewelry pouch to keep it from tarnishing, info packet on the stones and was wrapped very pretty, like a gift".....Tori
