The stone shown is about 8mm ( about 1.6 ct) lab-grown simulated Alexandrite.This listing is for a 6mm just like it. :) It has wonderful color change! I will make a ring like this for you in your size ! It will take about 5 weekdays to complete it - most of this time is just in the tumblers to harden the metal after the heat of the torch softens it. The blue picture is in office light. The pink is under a lamp, and the purple/pink is outside in natural light. ** please note ** This is NOT an alexandrite - not natural or lab grown in Russia. Its chemical composition is unknown to me but I know it is not going to be BeAl2O4. This is some kind of laboratory created simulation that has great sparkle and wonderful color change. I put the word zandrite in because I saw some that looked just like this to me. I don't know how to describe it better than this because I do not know the origins of the stones. I got them a long time ago from a jewelry store that was going out of business and they were certainly not the most expensive of the stones in the lot. Because of this, I doubt that it is glass, but it could be. If it matters to you, this is probably not the ring for you. ~~
