Alexandrite Publishing, LLC

The Alexandrite is a rare gemstone that has the unique distinction of appearing to change colors in different lighting. This quality perfectly symbolizes the shifting nature of understanding. Like an Alexandrite, what we read and how we perceive the information depends upon any number of variables. As a result, each reader will see something different when looking at the same text.

This concept of perspective is a core principle of our company. We strive to ensure that all of the materials we create provide readers with multiple angles with which to approach their understanding, allowing them to form unlimited new discoveries.

We believe in the joy of language. All of our resources are designed to promote joyful learning through experiential and discovery-based applications of knowledge. Our books are designed to capture and celebrate the joy of the story, whether you are the writer or the reader.
