SOLD ‘Un-sung Hero of the gem world’ is how I describe Spinel. This naturally occurring gemstone is found in many colors to suit your tastes. Spinel ranks about 8 1/2 on the Mohs hardness scale, and is in the top 10 most durable gemstones out of the 400 or more known to exist. This particular Spinel weighs in at 1.46 carat and hails from the region gemologists still call Ceylon. Ceylon is found on a map today as Sri Lanka. This pendant is made of 18 karat gold (sometimes stamped 750) to represent the 18/24ths or 75% fine gold content. 5/8ths carat of fully cut round brilliant diamonds accent the beauty of this spinel. Displayed on a satin cord, we offer a length that can be used as a necklace. Shipping is complimentary!
