Spinel, a gem of unparalleled beauty

Dear partners and color stone enthusiasts,

This month, we would like to introduce you to a variety of stones that offer an extraordinary range of colors, with vibrant flashes and exotic origins: Spinel.

Spinel has always intrigued and captivated jewelers and gemologists with its unique characteristics and rarity. Its resemblance to sapphires and rubies has often led to confusion between these different gemstones.

However, Spinel possesses exceptional and particularly enticing characteristics of its own.

Its range spans from flamboyant pink to vivid red, encompassing electric blue and enchanting mauve. There are numerous other softer tones that will equally catch your attention and that of your customers.

Its color is generally unaltered by humans or treatments, making it a perfectly pure gemstone from its extraction to the hands of fortunate jewelry enthusiasts.

The quality of Spinel is undeniable. With an impressive hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale, it withstands the test of time and maintains its magnificent luster for generations. This gemstone also impresses with its rarity. Indeed, Spinel is only found in very remote locations on Earth.

I visited the northern region of Vietnam about ten days ago, where the historical source and mines of Spinel are located. There, you can find Cobalt Spinel (electric blue), which gets its name from the chemical element that gives it its color. It is one of the rarest and most sought-after gemstones in the world, available only in very small sizes and quantities. It offers you the opportunity to create jewelry of exclusive and unique heritage in the market.

Vietnam also has other colors of Spinel, such as red, pink, and violet, which are equally splendid in their intensity.

Other significant sources of Spinel include Tanzania and Myanmar (Burma).

We have a wide collection of Spinels from these various origins. Feel free to contact us.

Spinel is the perfect choice for those seeking exclusivity, sophistication, and luxury.

It is also ideal for expressing your individuality and elegance through your creations. It is said to bring strength, courage, and vitality to the wearer, thereby enhancing the mind and body.
