Antiquity of Spinel

Spinel gemstone has been used for thousands of years, and yet it has been more often a topic of debate. But recently, people are beginning to give Spinel the recognition it deserved long ago. 

A long time ago, a beautiful orange-red stone was seen, but it was mistaken for a ruby. It was until 1789 that Jean Baptiste Louis Rome de Lisle recognized the difference between the two gemstones. 

This led to some other stones too that were mistaken for rubies but were actually Spinel. Spinel comes in a wide range of colors like black, blue, green, orange, gray, and red, but the most popular is red-colored Spinel, also known as flame spinel

Black spinel is one of the world's most precious gems, yet it is lesser known. The Greeks named spinel σπίν(ν)ος [spín(n)os, which means to sparkle or shine, so it has always been prized for its beauty and rarity. Because of its opaque, jet-black appearance, black spinel is often mistaken for black diamonds.
