If you're new to color-change gems, alexandrite--a variety of chrysoberyl--is the most notable example of this unique gemological phenomenon. JoCoJenn's 2-carat natural alexandrite changes from green in daylight or fluorescent light to a purplish hue in incandescent light. These gems are notoriously hard to photograph, and JoCoJenn has done a great job capturing the distinct color change--it's like a new ring in every picture! Be sure to visit JoCoJenn's forum thread for details and more images: My Alexandrite ring ... A year+ in the making
