Peter, Have you considered using lab grown alexandrite. I have used
some from Chatham. It is available in a large variety of sizes and
shapes. It’s quite beautiful and the price is right.
Yup. I tried to talk the guy into it, actually, as it better fits
his budget. But the lab grown tends to be the lighter hues, and he’s
looking for darker material if he can get it, and despite my sales
pitch, he won’t even consider anything but natural. thanks for the
