Item Description

Spinel is another gem that comes in a great range of colors. Most people are familiar with the Ruby Spinels, but a large percentage of Spinels out there are not red. It is an attractive, nearly eye clean, pinkish-purple color, "Oval" cut gemstone. The stone is very attractive for a purple Spinel, and is not a "grey" shade. The clarity is really impressive as most of these stones will have inclusions when they reach this size. It is difficult to find superb quality Spinels, espeically in this size, because they're usually very dark (almost black) or very included. Due to the political upheaval in southeast, it appears that these stones will soon be very very hard to come across and the days of the good Spinels may be dwindling.
