 Earth mined at Namya Ziek, Kachin State, Upper Burma (Myanmar), this stunning Violet Pink/Mauve Spinel weighs 2.64 Carats, and is VVS.

THE SPINEL 

Spinel is a single refractive stone with an index as high as 1.72-1.80. This property makes it a friendly and forgiving stone to cut. Its hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale is an advantage for both cutter and stone setter. Spinels specific gravity is 3.58-3.61. It is a natural and treatment-free stone - neither glass filling nor heat treatments. Cut by the spirits? Might be, but absolutely not burned, irradiated, glass injected or lubricated by the devils. The incorruptible nature of the Spinel is the main reason behind the renewed fascination of todays international gem markets for it - because it is exactly what gemstones used to be, charming, very rare, occasionally included, but always genuine. Hold one between your hands and you will, for a moment, touch a small part of natures magical beauty.

Prices for premium quality Spinel's are currently going through the roof, mainly due to the fact that it is a pure, and untreated, gemstone. It is the opinion of many 'experts' that the Spinel will replace both the Ruby, and the Sapphire as the leading coloured gemstone.

Many of the so called 'Ruby's' that can be found in the Crown Jewels of many nations, have since been found to be Spinel's.
