Spinel is another gem that comes in a great range of colors. Most people are familiar with the Ruby Spinels, but a large percentage of Spinels out there are not red. This is a beautiful lilac/purple Spinel stone. It is an attractive gem with an almost silvery or metallic overtone. The gem is virtually eye clean and has a traditional "Oval Step" cut. This is certainly a good quality Spinel with a lovely color.
