The rich and regal spinel is a gemstone that ranges in color from pale pink to deepest black. The black spinel is one of the rarest spinels. The spinel is known as the "great imposter" in the world of gemstones. Several of the "rubies" in the Queen of England's crown jewels are actually spinels.
Spinel crystals naturally form in clean, needle-like structures. The name is derived from the Latin word "spina," which translates to "spine."
Black Spinel is associated metaphysically with repelling negative energy and enhancing feelings of empowerment.
These teeny micro-faceted beads have extremely clean, precise, consistent facets to maximize sparkle. These beads can be strung on fine sized Softflex wire.
Please note that I use a macro lens to get as much up-close detail as possible. Pay close attention to the size description. For reference, a quarter coin measures about 24mm in diameter.
