    I have a 9 carat Ceylon Sapphire that was my FI’s Great Aunt’s. She bought it in Ceylon while travelling the world in January 1920. It is untreated and colour changing.  I wear it as a right hand ring sometimes.  Love changing changing stone.  Your ring is really pretty!!

    I wish I had good pics of mine. It’s a sapphire that changes from green/blue to yellow. When we looked for sapphires, nearly all of my favorites were colorchangers (and pricier)- one from a gorgeous chocolatey brown to purplish and another from green to blue. All super lively and sparkly.  I was told that colorchanging sapphires tend to be natural (unheated/untreated), which is rare for sapphires. Heating and treatment tends to make them one color and usually only great sapphires are left untreated and unheated.

    I really really want a cc garnet that goes from turquoise green to purple. I just want to be able to see it in person beforehand, which is next to impossible where I live.

    I DID have a colour changing Alexanandrite that my grandmother had gifted to me when I married my ex. It was her grandmother’s, mother’s ring…so it meant a lot to me. Unfortunately I left him in a hurry with none of my personal belongings due to domestic violence, and when I went to retrieve them, he would not return it to my possession. πŸ™ 

    It was set in rose gold, and would change between blue, purple, aqua and lilac; it was approx 15mm in diameter and was a rose cut I think?

    I have a pair of alexandrite earrings I inherited from my grandmother and fell in love with the stone. I then got an alexandrite as my stone for my class ring. 

    Then I met my future hubby, Alexander πŸ™‚

    I really wanted an alexandrite engagement ring but he thought amethyst was my favorite stone so he got me that instead. 

    Anyway, here are the goodies:

    hobbitses :  I think that’s a great way to phrase it. It also tends to look pretty green in my car and shaded sun but it’s more difficult to pick up on camera. 

    Here’s a bonus picture under the sun/heat lamp for our tortoise. I was curious if it would look different. 

    Almost as red as a ruby!

    hobbitses :  thank you bee <3 and yes – I’ll be forever heartbroken, but mostly angry with myself for not taking it with me when I left. I guess he’ll get his karma one day…

    On a plus note – my engagement ring is a blue diamond, but due to the inclusions in it, it appears that it “changes” colour in different lighting. Mostly it is an aqua blue, but changes to a pearlescent light blue similar to an AB crystal) and at other times a deep blue similar to a sapphire.

     

    This is what it looks like most of the time, which is my favourite (though I’ll have to take a few pictures in other lighting, when I get a chance0:

    If you enjoy color changing stones then you might like montana sapphires.  Many of them are shifty and one of my favorite places to see a lot of good pictures of them for sale is earths treasury.com and gemfix.com.  Many of the shift from an aqua to a silvery green though there are other less common colors.

    delphinia :  

    My engagement ring has a Montana sapphire center stone. Love it so much! It’s greenish-blue, slightly grey. Sometimes it’s a lovely cornflower color, like a true yogo sapphire. Other times it looks sea green. Still other times, it has an almost purple-ish look to it. That’s much less often though.
