Color change alexandrite

I have a customer who wants a 2.4mm round color change alexandrite
as one of the stones in a ring she’s ordered - ideally from reddish
orange to blueish green, like this:

So far all the gem dealers I’ve looked at in downtown Los Angeles
have primarily blue/green that barely changes, if at all.

Anyone have a clue or is the stone so small it’s not probable?

We had to source one for a customer a very similar size a few months
ago. One of our suppliers here in Melbourne Australia had one (which
we bought) the colours you are after and a very strong colour
change. They are out there in the size you need so dont give up. I
am sure you will find one!

We can supply as an alternative to alexandrite the new blue-green
color change garnets from Kenya. They rival the finest color change
alexandrines. Blue garnets are extremely rare only ever discovered
in Madagascar but depleted. The color changes are blue-red,
blue-green to red, blue-green to purple, green to red, etc We also
have many other very good color change garnets. There are some blue
garnets and just blue-green. These alexandrite color change garnets
are very rare and very special and come in larger sizes as well.
