This set of glasses is the most unique set we've ever seen. It was love at first sight when we saw these purple beauties for the first time. But when they turned blue while doing the dishes, we were completely amazed! With the help of our lovely Instagram followers, we found out what happened with the color.
These glasses are made of a very special kind of glass called Alexandrite, also called Neodymium glass. Alexandrite is dichromatic, meaning it shows two colors depending on the light source. When you hold the glasses in the sun, or other warm light, they appear to be bright purple. But when you hold them in white, fluorescent lighting they appear to be a beautiful blue color. This is due to the presence of neodymium oxide in the glass.
