seem to have their icons the wrong way round.
I personally find it rather curious that they decided to make the green gem named Alexandrite. Yes, there can be green forms, but that is sort of like a Pink Sapphire or Blue Topaz. I guess it'd be contradictory to name the green gem a "Green Alexandrite" but they do name others that way.
I have encountered many in person, and very few exhibit strong green tones, even in varying lights. You'll find them more as reds or purples... Then again, I suppose an argument could be made for Alexandrite being defined as any one colour - if anything I'd put it as purple or orange, but I suppose green could work (although you never see yellow in Alexandrites, but blues/purples/reds/and sometimes indeed green all show)
As usual, green gems are still horrible to get rid of, every green gem can be crafted into a ring/neck except blue (which can be put into making an eng scope) and green which can be turned into nothing on its own :/.
I did a small test and found that of 128 gems of this type (red, blue, yellow, orange, green, purple) the yield was 16 perfect gems. 2, 3, 2, 3, 3, 3 acording to color. Guessing the average to be about 14-15%.
