Alexandrite glass is dichroic meaning two colours. Due to the glass containing neodymium under different lighting conditions the glass magically changes colour.
In daylight the glass appears a lilac colour and under artificial light it is a turquoise colour
Rene Lalique only made a few examples of Alexandrite glass

The base of this ashtray is also like no other having facet cuts
