Spinel, like Sapphire, can come in a wide range of colors. This particular piece is in a soft pink that greatly resembles Morganite, though it is harder and has a higher refractive index, meaning a more brilliant gem.
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.
Lab created gems are in every way identical to the gems mined from the earth: chemically, physically, and of course, visually. Labour intensive work and potentially unethical practices are replaced with clean labs that produce near inclusion free, to perfectly inclusion free gems. There is no environmental impact, leading to an exceptionally lower carbon footprint. This also means more freedom for the purchaser to own a gem the size and quality they desire for a reasonable price.
