Tanzanian Spinel Gems
When it comes to gemstones, natural spinel isn't particularly well-known, especially when it comes to commercial retail jewelry. In fact, for most of time, spinel was mistaken for other gems, such as varieties of corundum, like the curious case of 'The Black Prince's Ruby'. Spinel is highly prized for its excellent hardness (8 on Mohs scale), and compared to precious ruby, spinel has greater dispersion (fire) and brilliance. Spinel is also one of the few singly refractive gems, which gives it the ability to exhibit intense colors with a special level of purity. Best of all, spinel is never treated unlike sapphire and ruby, making it one of the best untreated gemstones on the market.

Historically, Burma (Myanmar) has been the world's primary source for fine quality spinel, which is also one of the reasons it has been a difficult gemstone to source for most buyers. However, since the last decade, spinel has become much more openly available because of Tanzanian deposits being commercialized. Burma is still the leader when it comes to the rare red spinel, but Tanzania is becoming one of the top producers for other attractive spinel colors, such as pink, violet, blue and unusual orange, as well as a bright purple variety too. Most spinel is very hard to find in gems weighing over 1 carat, but many spinel gems from Tanzania are being discovered in very large sizes, often weighing over 5-10 carats. Nowadays, in addition to Burma and Tanzania, spinel is also mined and sourced from Sri Lanka and Tajikistan, usually alongside ruby and sapphire.

finally bought the last rock to complete my ring idea; needed another white one after giving the big diamond to my daughter. a diamond that size is out of my retired-school-teacher budget, so i bought a white zircon. went back to the same place that i got my loose sapphire-- great selection, good prices, good delivery!

I'm always real pleased with this website, I don't think there is much you could do to make it any better. I wish the shipping charges were lower, but it is understandable.

This is a site that sources valuable and genuine stones forms around the world, with and honest and descriptive sections, as well as specs, and the option to have the gemstone collection one might purchased—certified! Price ranges vary, but are always affordable and always worth it, whether it’s a gift, or for a personal business.

I recently found a site on-line where you can purchase faceted gems. I made one purchase, and the day the gems arrived, I was so happy with them, that I immediately went back on-line and purchased four more gems! They look better "in person" than they do on the computer screen. I am making purchases for gifts.

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
