Spinel has a specific gravity of 3.6g/cm3, meaning that they are about 30% heavier than quartz. If you need something to add a little weight to your jewelry, this is it!

Spinel typically has a deep black color and a slightly metallic luster. And while more rare, it is also found in a variety of different colors ranging from translucent greys to pink. 

Spinel is found in a number of different locations around the world, including Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Australia. It is one of the harder stones rating an 8 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, making it ideal for long lasting jewelry that won't scuff or scratch over time.

Black spinel is also believed to have a number of metaphysical properties, including the ability to grounding and protection. As a result, the gemstone is often worn by people who are looking to encourage positive energy and ward off negative influences.
