This is Alexandrite, it’s also called “emerald by day, ruby by night”
It changes colour based on whether the light source is from the sun or from a candle.
It does this because Alexandrite strongly absorbs yellow light due to chromium ions in its crystal structure, leaving the other colours behind. Light from the Sun emits all colours, but it peaks in the green, and our eyes are most sensitive to green, so in Sunlight Alexandrite is green.
Incandescent lights are things like candles and filament light bulbs. They also emit all colours of light, but they peak far, far into the red, so there’s not nearly as much green or blue, so under those, Alexandrite is red.
Gemstones are awesome.

he’s so pretty and cute and DON’T LEAVE
do you think the spoilers could actually jus the the plot of Rachel’s show and they’re just trying to get us worked up? and how do we even know this person is a legit source anyway?
Could be. And we don’t. Part of the fun of all this is how readily we accept such ludicrously terrible plot spoilers to be true. It says so much about our expectations and previous experiences…
I think now might be a good time for all of us to ignore spoilers and focus on fandom stuff. Then just see what happens when it airs. To much stress and such a long time til they air, so lets all relax and have fun.
I think there is a tonne to b said about not doing the ‘too much stress’ thing. I have long held the view that if a TV show/fandom is not making you happy then you should get the fuck out. Sure, they can make you mad/sad now and then but overall the experience should be positive. For me, the loltastic nature of this and my low care factor when it comes to canon are working for me. But yeah, people shouldn’t let this destroy their lives… that’s silly. I do think these spoilers are super dumb though.
I’m trying to get #lolglee trending. What else are we gonna do?
Seriously though, this is why I fucking wrote Platonic like a billion years in the future. Platonic is still safe. Fuck, at 21, after the entire train wreck of S6, Blaine goes off to Stanford to become a lawyer because his parents make him, Kurt goes back to NYC to get his foot in the door of fashion and then the fic takes off from there. Happily ever after takes a bit longer but at least I can kind of deal with whatever S6 throws at me.
As long as we don’t get a timejump to like… 2045, showing 50+ Kurt living in his dad’s basement being miserable and wandering the McKinley halls behind ridiculous Rachel and 50+ Blaine working at the GAP or something. They’re not allowed to do that.
i cant believe they cancelled glee so suddenly like that. big shocker. at least the final episode worked so well as a series finale.
I just caught up on the epic Glee spoilers and I couldn’t do much more than laugh. If my favorite fanfic author wrote an epic, porny fic and that was the summary I would unfollow that fanfic author…
I’m still gonna watch, of course, I’m still gonna madly ship klaine (quite possibly in an AU where everything isn’t shit) but jesus christ, at some point it’s okay to just admit this show is complete trash, right? Like it was amazing, it has done so much for so many and so well and no shade to anyone involved. But at some point I think I might just shrug my shoulders and admit it is now a giant steaming pile of poop.
Even the most gorgeous, decadent, enjoyable meal ends up that way so I guess, in some ways, this was inevitable.
