These Spinels are almost identical in color and clarity, cut from the parcel we purchased ourselves while abroad. It was an adventure getting them in Chanthaburi, Thailand, and to continue the adventure together, Melanie and I each cut one!
The design used for these Spinel's is the 'Heart' design found in our Faceting Design's 'Other' section, boasting excellent reflection patters and light return.
Both Spinels are slightly included, not noticeable at a regular viewing distance.
Spinel has a history of being mistaken for Sapphires and Rubies. We now know that Spinel sits at an 8 on the Mohs scale, just behind Sapphire, but its fire is just as impressive. In recent years it has attracted more attention as an alternative to Sapphires and Rubies, for both price and appearance.
