Comment: As always, an almost 100% color-change in these alexandrites from Fort Victoria, Zimbabwe, though I had a harder time catching it on image. Also, in mixed light, one shows itself more purple than the other (more rose). In person one gets the rare chance of studying the legendary blue-green to purple-red colorchange that made alexandrite one of the most famous and expensive matters on earth. An affordable chance to make a pair of alexandrite studs. Note the almost identical face-dimensions. 

* P.S. DSEF has detected minor surface oil in the last lot that they checked. Before, we did not have this result (not from DSEF nor from IGI) and these gems all come from the same source and supply-path. We assume that either DSEF has raised its standards and that some oil or wax has been left over from the cutting or polishing process. We do not consider these residues a 'treatment' since they were not done, nor resulted in, any enhancement of the gems.
