Spinel.

Spinel is a rare red gemstone.

Spinel is a rare and very attractive gemstone.

For hundreds of years spinel's were regarded on a similar level like the best rubies actually these two precious stones were of a similar level of beauty and intense color, even in the tower of London the most opulent gemstones came from Burma actually to be correct they were stolen from Burma by the British Colonial Troops.

The creator of the crown didn't know the difference between these two stones only in the last two hundred years with the advancement of technology the differences were made visible. The photo above shows some color varieties of spinel's.

Anyway this beautiful gemstone is generally all-natural no enhancing treatment is done like it is almost normal for rubies and sapphires which are mainly manipulated by greedy Thai people who cheat the tourist in Bangkok and at their other tourist centers where lapidary is manufactured. It is one of the few gemstones that naturally appear in blue has a grand past famous jewelry (British crown jewelry) and with the knowledge beginning to gain popularity.

Over the last centuries many stories appeared about this red gemstone from India to Russia to Britain and people thought they were Rubies until the advanced technical machines made it possible to discover the thing behind beautiful Spinel gemstones after all.

Back in the 11th Century and the criteria for gemsThe maker of the crown didn't know the difference between these two stones only in the last two hundred years with the advancment of technology the differences were made visible. The photo above shows some color varieties of spinels to go into the crowns of kings queens and emperors were mainly being Spinel or Ruby only in the 18th century when technological machinery got advanced rubies began to get higher prices. As a matter of fact to me spinels have a better red color intensity compared to rubies.
