What makes spinel particularly intriguing is its remarkable resemblance to other precious gemstones. In fact, throughout history, many spinel's have been misidentified as rubies or sapphires due to their similar appearance. One of the most famous examples is the "Black Prince's Ruby," which adorns the Imperial State Crown of England and is, in fact, a large red spinel.
Spinel possesses excellent hardness and durability, making it a desirable gemstone for jewelry. Its hardness ranges from 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, comparable to other popular gemstones like topaz and quartz. This durability ensures that spinel can withstand the rigors of daily wear without losing its brilliance or luster.
Spinel is found in various locations around the world, including Myanmar (formerly Burma), Sri Lanka, Thailand, Afghanistan, Tanzania, and Vietnam, among others. Each location yields spinel with its unique color variations and characteristics.
In recent years, spinel has gained renewed popularity among gemstone enthusiasts and jewelry designers due to its remarkable beauty, durability, and affordability compared to other gemstones.
