This beautiful natural spinel is a reddish pink color. It is an oval shape and is faceted.
This spinel is loose and not in a setting. I would be happy to create a ring or pendant setting for this beautiful stone. Let's talk.

Spinel is a natural gemstone mineral that has been confused with ruby and sapphire for over 1000 years. Several of the most spectacular spinels ever discovered have been mounted in crown jewels, such as the "Black Prince's Ruby" and "Timur Ruby." It is sometimes known as "The Better Ruby." Spinel occurs in the same bright red and blue colors as rubies and sapphires, and forms in the same rock units, under the same geological conditions.
Gem-quality red spinels are very rare. They are much less abundant than rubies and sapphires of similar quality and color. Named in 1779 by Jean Demeste from latin "spinella," or little thorn, alluding to its sharp octahedral crystals. It is 7½ - 8 on the Mohs hardness scale, and has no visible inclusions. The color of spinels are natural and untreated, unlike many other gemstones.
