Product description

The beauty of spinel gemstones, particularly those originating from Ceylon (Sri Lanka), is celebrated among gem enthusiasts and jewelry connoisseurs around the world. The remarkable pear-shaped purple spinel described here maintains the regal and sought-after status that spinels have enjoyed for centuries. These gemstones are increasingly appreciated for their wide array of colors, outstanding brilliance, and durability, making them an excellent choice for everyday wear.
One of the unique features of this 1.61 carat spinel is its captivating purple hue, with a medium intense color intensity that strikes a delicate balance between vibrancy and subtlety. It glows with a mixed brilliant cut, an elegant and sophisticated choice that maximizes the stone's reflective qualities. The cut amplifies its luster and fire, ensuring it captures attention with every flicker of light. With dimensions of 8.82 x 5.86 x 4.59 mm, it's an ideal size for a statement piece of jewelry, such as the central stone in a pendant or a striking ring.
The clarity of this purple spinel is designated as very slightly included when assessed at eye level, indicating that any inclusions are negligible and do not detract from the gemstone's natural allure. The quality of the cut and ensuing excellent polish further emphasize the clarity, creating a gemstone that's both visually flawless and sparkling.
Crafted from mineral compositions that yield exceptional resilience, with a Mohs hardness rating just below that of sapphire and ruby, spinel is a suitable choice for those seeking a durable and long-lasting gemstone for frequent wear.
As for its geological provenance, the origin in Ceylon is significant. Sri Lanka is renowned for producing some of the finest quality spinels in the world, and owning a Ceylonese spinel comes with an assurance of both rarity and authenticity.
This exceptional purple spinel fulfills the needs and interests of customers who are looking for more than just a sparkling gemstone. Its rich color signifies royalty and luxury, making it an ideal heirloom piece. For those who appreciate the metaphysical, spinel is believed to carry several benefits, such as rejuvenation and the encouragement of new ways of thinking, which adds an extra layer of desirability. Customers with a penchant for unique, lesser-known gemstones will revel in the exclusivity that a Ceylon purple spinel provides.
Whether set into a customized piece of fine jewelry or added to a collection of precious stones, this gemstone is sure to be cherished for its inherent beauty, exceptional quality, and the delightful mystique of its Ceylonese roots.
