A GEM THAT TRICKS

A GEM THAT TRICKS A Aficionados of gems find this gem emerald by day,ruby by night G Gem so rare and ravishing turns trickster in the light E Embellishment in gold to adorn your beloved’s ring or pendant M Mother Nature’s chameleon in stone, shiny and resplendent ! T This shares its status as June birthstone with cultured pearl and moonstone H Hosts a magic show this pleochroic gem through its dramatic colour tone A Alexandrite is this precious gemstone genuinely gracious sans prudery T This mined in the Urals, named after Czar, seen in prized estate jewellery T The ladies with pride can flaunt one stone as two, in day and in night R Radiating green or purplish red matching their dresses with delight I Invest once on this dear hubbies, it will save you from demand twice C Chrysoberyl is the embedded mineral causing colour changes so nice K Kaleidoscope of gems this is with vivid hues and healing energy S Strengthens creativity and intuition as believed in astrology! 25th October 2016 For contest-A Gem for Your Verse Sponsored by: Carolyn Devonshire

Anu, Wow, a pleasant read and a geology and vocabulary lesson to boot! "Pleochroic" went right to my book of good words. And I'll have to look into Alexandrite for my wife--two gifts in one, as you point out. Thanks for this poem. So fun. Should do well! (Acrostic, also. Nice.) Thanks, Dave
