The Alexandrite is a phenomena gem. It displays the phenomena called colour change. Most of the time under day light it is green in colour. When placed under incandescent light (candle light) it changes to a reddish, purplish, brownish colour. This is due to the reaction of light with the chromium in the gem. At different times of the day, you will see a slightly different shade of green / reddish / purplish / brown.
