Pretty in pink and sometimes in screaming pink!

Pink Spinel colors can range from light pastel pink to medium pink to a screaming hot pink.

Spinel is the new birthstone for August, together with Peridot.

For centuries Spinels were confused with Rubies and Sapphires, especially since they are found in many of the same sources.

One of the most famous gemstones in the world, the ‘Black Princes Ruby’ in the Crown Jewels of England is actually a Red Spinel!

Notable sources of Pink Spinel include Burma, Tanzania, Tajikistan and Vietnam.

Spinel is a durable gemstone with a hardness of 8 on the Mohs Scale and can easily be used in all types of jewelry.

Spinel also celebrates the 22nd anniversary and comes in a wide variety of colors, giving lots of options for August!
