Formed when molten lava is pushed through the Earth’s crust under extremely high pressure, Alexandrite is still extremely rare. The birthstone for June, it was named after Prince Alexander II of Russia as it was discovered on his birthday in 1830 near the Ural Mountains. Alexandrite represents balance, love and healing – a trinity of qualities we would all like to have.
My birthstone branch necklace is part of my woodland collection inspired by my daily walks with Rolo. The graceful pendant is set with an Alexandrite and hangs from a delicate trace chain.
