Spinel, MgAl2O4, is a very attractive and historically important gemstone. In fact, many rubies of crown jewel collections were actually red spinels. Although the most common spinel color is red, it also comes in green, blue, purple, brown and black. Spinel is very hard, being 7.5 to 8.0 on the mohs scale. The refractive index is 1.71 to 1.76 with an isometric crystal system. Important sources are Burma, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Brazil. On this page, we feature some of our finished. Keep in mind that we can mount any of our loose spinel gemstones in jewelry of your choice. Finished jewelry can be viewed here.
