Developed by NetComposite Ltd, a London based new media agency, and sponsored by and natural alexandrite jewelry designer, the Alexandrite Gemstone Encyclopedia sets the new standard for a niche reference subject with the publication of the most comprehensive reference about alexandrite and includes never before published facts about alexandrite's discovery and history.
