Can you love something for the sake of rarity? on Oct 9 2009, at 20:31 in Why do you love alexandrite?
I am not sure if I can love anything for it's rarity and/or value. There are many gemstones which are much more rare than alexandrite and some defiantly a lot more valuable.

But alexandrite has a personality not like any other gem. A combination of it's amazing colour change properties and back-story of the stone. It's dualism is so strongly connected with Russian history, that I would think it makes it very special to Russian people.

Personally, I love the name - "Alexandrite". It's sounds so wonderful and noble, that I simply want to keep saying it.
