Andalusite

Andalusite is named after Andalusia, the province of Spain where it was first discovered. Andalusite is a strongly pleiochroic gem, which means that is different colors when viewed from different directions. However, it is not a color-change stone because the colors are present at the same time. Most faceted andalusites give a play of red, green, and yellow colors. Because of its color and durability, it is a great gem for most jewelry uses.

NOTE: Stones on this page were photographed under 5000 Kelvin "daylight" lighting.
For maximum color accuracy, descriptions were made in north-facing natural daylight,
indoors, between 11am-2pm, at 32.89°N latitude.

COLOR: Wherever possible, a similar Pantone Color Card number has been used, NOT the Pantone colors online,
which necessarily use RGB approximations, are grayer, and not at all the same.
Since color is so subjective to lighting conditions, and light is in turn subjective to location,
descriptions and pictures are intended to give a general idea of actual color.
To know what these stones really look like, there is no substitute for seeing them in person.
