Spinel is known for its beautiful color and appearance. Thus, it makes an excellent jewelry stone. Because of its alluring color, good luster, and excellent transparency Spinel is highly desirable and displays a glamorous and elegant look. Spinel is quite durable and therefore can be worn in daily wear jewelry. Until recently, spinel was an underappreciated gem with little consumer recognition. Increasing demand for ruby alternatives rekindled appreciation for spinel’s rich red color and history. It has long been mistaken for ruby by emperors and monarchs. Many of the famous “rubies” of history were actually spinels. They were often found in the same places, and once polished, the two gems were nearly indistinguishable. And without the scientific equipment we have today, it was much more difficult to differentiate the two gemstones—it wasn’t until 1783 that a mineralogist discovered they were not, in fact, the same thing. You may be surprised to know that spinel is rarer than ruby. Found in a variety of colors, including red, blue, violet, and dark green, spinel gemstones help the wearer to de-stress and re-energize themselves from all aspects.
