Chapter 2. Diaphanite or Alexandrite?

Destiny sometimes treats people strangely, not only during their lifetime, but also after their death. The true events behind a story can be distorted by gossip or slander or intentionally modified to influence their historical context. Precious stones have had their own role in the shaping of history and destiny. Jealousy and greed conspire to obscure the truth and the stories behind many of the most remarkable gems are often a mixture of truth and lies.
