Blue spinel has been cherished throughout various cultures and it was often mistaken for sapphire due to its close resemblance. One of the most famous spinel gems in history is the Black Prince's Ruby, set in the British Imperial State Crown, which is, in fact, a large red spinel.
Found in various parts of the world, including Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, and Vietnam, blue spinel has a remarkable geological origin. It forms in the earth's crust through a combination of elements such as aluminum, oxygen, and magnesium. The presence of trace elements contributes to the gem's distinct blue coloration.
Aside from its allure and beauty, blue spinel is also valued for its exceptional durability. Ranking 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness, it is a gemstone well-suited for everyday wear in various types of jewelry, from rings to necklaces and earrings. Jewelers love working with blue spinel due to its excellent toughness, allowing them to create intricate and stunning designs that highlight the gem's brilliance and color.
The popularity of blue spinel in modern times has grown steadily, as more people become aware of its existence and extraordinary attributes. It has found its way into both high-end and artisanal jewelry pieces, appealing to those who seek a unique gemstone alternative to more traditional options.
In conclusion, blue spinel is a mesmerizing gemstone that combines breathtaking beauty, durability, and rarity. Its rich history, coupled with its vibrant blue color and impressive sparkle, makes it a treasure cherished by those who appreciate the allure of exceptional gemstones. Whether set in a regal ring, a graceful necklace, or an elegant pair of earrings, blue spinel is sure to continue captivating hearts and minds for generations to come.
