About Spinel

Spinel is an attractive gemstone that comes in a wealth of colours. Spinels have been mistaken for other coloured gemstones for centuries. Some of the most famous rubies in history aren't rubies but red spinel! For example, the red gem set in Great Britain's Imperial State Crown was identified as a red spinel. In recent years, spinels have really come into their own and being recognized for its beauty and value. Fine spinels are equally rare and beat the best top colour of other gemstones.


Spinel is a stone of revitalization, inspiration and hope. They are known as soothing stones and help to reduce stress in their owners. Moreover, some called it "the stone of immortality," which will bring freshness to all your pursuits and endeavours.
