Spinel's profile is rising, becoming a highly sought-after gemstone. It is mined from the same gravel pits as Sapphire and Ruby. Spinel comes in various colours, red and cobalt blue being the most highly prized, followed closely by Mehenge pink. It also comes in purple, violet, lavender and grey. Spinel has incredible saturation of colour, and when you look closely, it has a metallic shimmer. The high refractive index makes it a lustrous gemstone with plenty of internal fire.
