Alexandrite is fabulously rare. While certainly not the strongest of materials, it lives in an aura of mystery unrivaled by any other mineral. Fine quality natural Alexandrite changes color under different types of light. In daylight it is a medium green to bluish green color and when illuminated by torchlight it will appear a violet-red color. The stronger the color change, the more expensive the sample and Alexandrite can be very expensive, indeed. It has a vitreous luster and ranges from transparent to translucent. Most weapons crafted in Alexandrite are more ornamental than functional.
