This spinel contains the element cobalt which gives it a blue colour. These are extremly hard to find. Also, ontop of the rarity of the cobalt blue, this stone exhibits colour change. Wow what a beauty!
Spinel is the great impostor of gemstone history: many famous rubies in crown jewels around the world are actually spinels. The most famous is the Black Prince's ruby, a magnificent 170-carat red spinel that now adorns the Imperial State Crown of England in the British Crown Jewels. Recently gem quality spinels were also found in the marbles of Luc Yen (Vietnam), Mahenge and Matombo (Tanzania), Tsavo (Kenya) and in the gravels of Tunduru (Tanzania) and Ilakaka (Madagascar).

Gemstone Selection and Quality
When selecting gemstones to sell, I use my knowledge and skills obtained from the Accredited Gemologist Diploma from the AIGS, as well as the collective knowledge of the ICA to select high quality, reasonably priced gemstones. Gems are tested in the field with various tools including magnification loops, refractometer, and if necessary, tested in a gemological lab to ensure correct representation of the gem and it's worth.
I support the full discloser of any treatments performed on any gem that is place up for auction. I never sell laboratory gown synthetic gemstones. Some treatments are common place amongst gemstones, such as glass filling of Rubies, oiling of Emeralds and heating of Zoisite to create Tanzanite. Even these treatments which are considered common place will be disclosed in my auctions. If you still need further peace of mind, contact the Gem Stone Sheriff on Gemrock Auctions to confirm if the gem description is accurate.
Every effort is made to ensure accurate and representative photography of the stone.
