Alexandrite - the symbolism of red & green colors. The red flag symbolized insurrection during the revolutions, but in spite of its association with violence (and blood), the russian word for red also means “beautiful”. Green color commonly associated with nature and harmony. Does it mean that in Russia, Alexandrite can symbolize "beatiful nature"?
