In ancient Sanskrit writings, spinel was called the “daughter of ruby” because centuries ago the bright red color of Spinel was sometimes mistaken for a ruby because of its likeness in color. Much rarer than diamonds or sapphires, spinel makes beautiful jewelry and has increased in popularity.
Spinels can be found in shades of gray, pink, blue, orange, and purple. Specifically, gray spinels have a cool, neutral look and is a timeless color.
In ancient times, it was believed that the stone protected people from harm and to soothe away sadness.
To clean Spinel jewelry at home, use a gentle dish detergent and a scrub the stone with a soft brush to remove & dust.
