Finer Details

Spinel is a naturally occuring gemstone which has long been used in jewellery and comes in a range of colours. Most popularly seen in red, it has long been used in the place of rubies - in fact it was only when gemologists began to identify gemstones by X-rays that they realised a lot of old rubies were actually in fact spinels. Many royal crown jewels thought to contain rubies that have actually turned out be Spinels - the Black Prince's Ruby in the British Imperial State Crown is a actually a 170 Carat red Spinel. The most rare white Spinel - The Great White Spinel of Kandy - has been missing from the French Court in the mid 1800s, and is worth over £1m, so keep your eye out...
