Spinel came from the Green word "spark'. Many scholars have also believed the name came from the Latin word "Spinella, " which translates as thorn or spine in modern English, referring to the sharp points of its crystals.
Natural Spinel comes in a host of hues, from the famous red to vibrant pink, intense orange, and all shades of blue and purple to even leaving out violet through to the mouthwatering bluish green. Vivid reds and pinks are caused by the presence of Chromium in the mineral—the more chromium presence in the mineral, the more vibrant the red hue.
Natural Spinels can be found in Afghanistan, Burma(Myanmar), Cambodia, Brazil, Russia, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Vietnam and Thailand. Natural Spinels are very durable gemstones with an impressive hardness of 80 on the Mohs Hardness Scale and can be cut in many shapes and sizes.
