Blue Spinel
Spinel is a special gemstone in many ways. For centuries it was mistaken for ruby and gained undeserved fame. Today fine red spinel is more rare than ruby but less valuable. That looks like a delayed revenge for its unlucky past. Its name derivation is also ambiguous. Experts are undecided whether it derives from the Greek word for "spark" or the Latin for "thorn".

Although commonly thought of as red, spinel can be found in a range of beautiful colors. These include pink, purple, orange, blue and every combination in between, and make spinel one of the most desirable stones in the world.

Due to its excellent hardness (8 on the Mohs scale) and high clarity, spinel produces fine jewelry in various cuts and shapes. Spinel is never treated in any way and continues to be a great substitute for ruby and sapphire as well as an outstanding stone in its own right.
