SPINEL

Spinel has a lower hardness than both sapphire and ruby on the Mohs’ scale of hardness. Its uniqueness derives from its presentation in many colours, sharply pointed, crystal shape and natural sparkle, similar to diamonds, due to both being in the cubic crystal system. These characteristics are to account for its name according to some etymologists and Gemologists.

The history of spinel goes as far back as to the ancient landmines of the South East and Central Asia. In these regions, they were known as “Ballas rubies” and were much coveted as spoils during ancient imperial wars. It was also a treasure among kings and emperors.

Imagine you are adorned with one of the rarest and most historic gemstones like the Spinel.
