Birthstone for the month of August, Spinel comes in a variety of colors- intense red, vibrant pink, orange, purple, violet, blue, bluish green, lavenders and mauves. The name “spinel” comes from the Latin word spina, which means thorn, in reference to the shape of spinel crystals.
Spinel is thought to protect the owner from harm, to reconcile differences, and to soothe away sadness. However, the strongest reasons for buying a spinel are its rich, brilliant array of colors and its surprising affordability.
One of the most under-appreciated gemstones, spinel is coveted by collectors and gemologists for its range of hues and spectacular optical properties. Spinel was recently added as an official birthstone for August, raising its exposure to new heights. Recognized and prized for its hardness, brilliance, and unlike many other gem types, spinel is rarely treated or enhanced in any way.
