-Spinel is a hard stone that works great in any type of jewelry.

-Spinel’s color ranges from light lavender and pink to hot pink and deep red.
Spinel, while not well known in its own right, slipped into history as famous rubies, including the Black Prince Ruby found in the British Crown Jewels. Spinel is rated an 8 in hardness and is quite tough, which increases its ability to mimic ruby. Spinel ranges in color from light lavender and pink to hot pink and deep red. The stone is certainly beautiful enough to stand on its own merit. Interestingly, spinel is more rare than the ruby it sometimes imitates, but the price stays low because not many people know about its beauty and usability in jewelry.
