Spinel is a magnesium aluminium oxide mineral. It is very popular in jewellery making, and comes in a variety of colours. When set in jewellery the stone is rather hard to distinguish from ruby. The more abundant colour of Spinel is red and this was at one time known as ‘Balas Ruby’ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
