The stone will appear more silvery light purple in outdoor lighting and more saturated violet purple indoors.
Spinel is a gemstone that at one time was famous for being mistaken for ruby or sapphire. These days spinel gets the respect it deserves - it is recognized for its excellent hardness, brilliance, and the fact that unlike most ruby and sapphire gemstones, spinel is never heated or treated in any way.
Due to its very good dispersion, spinel gemstones can possess vivid fire. The intensity of spinel color is in part due to the fact that spinel is one of the few singly refractive gemstones, the others include garnet and diamond. Our spinels are untreated and natural earth-mined gems.
