Beautiful Spinel

Beautiful Spinel

We just completed the beautiful spinel ring pictured and thought we would share with you more about this gorgeous gemstone.

Often mistaken for ruby, spinel is available in an array of colours, from orange and red, pink, purple, and blue through to bluish green.

Red and pink spinels are the result of chromium. The higher the level of chromium, the more intense the colour red. Orange and purple spinels are created from a combination of iron and chromium.

Spinel has a wonderful sparkle, brilliance and hardness that has a similar structure to ruby.

Found in many of the same locations as ruby, the two stones have often been confused, however, ruby is the result of aluminium oxide and spinel, magnesium aluminium oxide.

Spinel is said to be a revitalising stone that can help relieve stress and anxiety.  An inspiring stone it can also bring new hope.

If you are looking for a piece of spinel jewellery this year, we would love to assist.

Chat to us about your dream spinel jewellery piece and we can sketch out some ideas and show you our spinels on hand. We can also source your very own special spinel.

Visit us at 24 St Quentin Avenue Claremont or contact us to find out more.
