Saint Alexandra, the wife of the emperor Diocletian, who went down in history as one of the most cruel persecutors of Christians, was a secret Christian. She witnessed the terrible torture of the great martyr George the Victorious. Seeing the firmness of the saint's faith, she decided to openly testify of her faith in Jesus Christ. The Empress went to the place where St. George, fell at his feet and in front of everyone declared herself a Christian.

The embittered Diocletian sentenced the queen to death. Saint Alexandra with humility accepted this verdict and meekly went to the place of execution, prayerfully turning her gaze to heaven. On the way, tired, she asked the soldiers to let her rest a little and, leaning against the wall of the building, she died quietly. Her peaceful death followed on April 21, 303, but her memory is celebrated simultaneously with the Great Martyr George, on April 23 according to the church calendar (May 6 according to the new style).

On the reverse side of the icon is the text of the prayer to Tsarina Alexandra: "Holy saint of God Alexandra, pray to God for me, a sinner."

A miniature icon can be worn as an independent product, or you can supplement it with an enamel pendant called a tsata. This is a semicircle ornament, traditional for Ancient Russia, which is hung from icons and crosses. Our tsats are made of stained glass enamel in different colors. Stained glass enamel is one of the most sophisticated and sophisticated techniques of artistic enameling, which appeared in Russia at the end of the 19th century. It differs from ordinary cloisonné enamel by the absence of a substrate, due to which it acquires transparency and the ability to transmit light, beautifully refracting it.
