Certified Spinel, 2.49CT, Purple-Pink, Cushion Cut, Clean IF, Burmese
Listing is for a Burmese Spinel, 2.49CT, Deep Purple-Light Pink tint, Cushion Cut, Flawless Spinel. If you like dark deep Purplish color gemstone, this is a perfect one. It does have good luster and shine. I am always biased towards spinel because it is an excellent alternative to Ruby and Sapphire but at a lower cost. For centuries people mistaken Spinel’s for Rubies since they are hard to distinguish without proper training and lab evaluation. Even the 100CT “Ruby” set on one of Queen Elizabeth’s crowns was later tested to be a Spinel. It is durable (Hardness scale=8) and can stand everyday use. Spinel is known as the “Great Imposter” for Ruby and it is an awesome gemstone that we highly recommend for those with a smaller budget.
