Certified Strong Change Alexandrite 21.23cts

Dark blue green in daylight and purple- red under incandescent light, the color change is strong and attractive. Although the clarity is not that good, alexandrites this large are extremely rare. An antique setting might be the best way to set this stone. The cutting and proportions are quite good.
