Spinel has long been underappreciated as a fine gemstone, after spending centuries being confused with sapphire and ruby–and for good reason, as they are nearly identical in brilliance and dispersion.  Spinel is slightly less hard than sapphire, but still hard enough to be a durable gem, as it’s also quite tough; it’s suitable to be used in everyday jewelry. This Burmese spinel is an intense orange-tinted red–spinels this color are typically called “Flame Spinel.” The gem has excellent clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. There is one small inclusion near one end that is just barely visible to the naked eye if you know where to look for it; at a normal viewing distance it is eye-clean.

The spinel is faceted in our custom “Testudo” brilliant oval design and cut to high precision; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. It weighs 1.34 carats and measures 7.5 x 5.7 x 4.6 mm.  It would make a unique and beautiful center stone for an engagement ring!
