The beauty, brilliance, and durability of spinel make it the perfect gemstone to wear every day and in any type of jewelry. Spinel is available in exotic locations throughout the world in a wide array of colors, including pink, red, lavender, purple, blue, and black.
Since spinel is an 8 on the Mohs' scale of hardness, it can be faceted to a brilliant sparkle and is difficult to chip and scratch. Historically, spinel has been often confused with other similarly colored gemstones. The high brilliance and reflective nature that faceted black spinel exhibits makes it easily mistaken for black diamonds. Because spinel can be found in many of the same mining areas that produce sapphire and ruby, it has often been mistaken for these beauties. In fact, several fine historically important "rubies," including the "Black Prince's Ruby" in the British Crown Jewels, is actually red spinel.
