Note - As Loop Troop has limited my live listings at any one time, many of my gemstones that were up earlier are still available for sale. To see all the stones I have to offer, please click one of these links -
or my FB store, as I do 99.99% of my business on Facebook & many times my stones do not make it to Esty before being sold.
Video taken under LED & fluorescent light is best representation of stone. First three pictures taken under LED & fluorescent light. All other pictures taken outside in shaded & direct natural sunlight.
This Spinel could be mistaken for a Tanzanite, but it is a Spinel which is considerably harder & tougher & can be worn every day in a ring. Like Tanzanite it is violet under LED & fluorescent light, shifting to more of a bluish violet under sunlight. It will turn an electric purple/violet under incandescent & some commercial lighting. Lots of dispersion (the video does not do the dispersion justice) in a bright medium dark tone that is closer to medium than dark. Good cutting gives this stone lots of life & brilliance. Eye clean. Nice Spinel.
