Nice colour change. And I like the way in which you mixed different types/cuts of alexandrite from faceted to cab to cat's eyes.

Any comments welcome-steve... ??? 8) [the light source is LED for daylight & 2 candles in dark room for the color change to reddish]

Well, we never do anything at all that might hurt the little bunnies OMC:)

Another interesting aspect is stones that the cutter thinks they might get faint pink- but they get F

We're cruelty free after all right?

A stone gets F but looks pink?  that's ccrazy!
Right?
Here's another example:


If you think about it, stones like the one below- graded "faint Pink" by GIA, are almost white

Thanks Squig!

I have a few more rabbits up my sleeve ( mixed metaphors)
That must be terribly inconvenient, especially when they all want to get out at the same time.

As promised, here's the next interesting brown.

In this case, GIA didn't identify anything other than J color.
The pink I see is so very faint- sometimes the stone just looks white.
GIA noted internal graining- and you can see that in the pictures.
But based on the way it's cut- just like a Faint Pink, you get a total sparkle sort of light performance.
That means you can't see the graining in person.
Also no bowtie whatsoever.

The stone should be hitting the site tomorrow.
