I want you to pay attention to all 4C factors.
Spinel may occur in different colors. The most desirable and commercially important ones are Vivid Red, Pink, which are in high demand among collectors and gemstone lovers. Cobalt blue color is valuable as well. Spinel’s price increases annually. If you are looking for a stone to invest, I would, definitely, recommend to choose spinel.
Spinel is a clarity II type, which means that some inclusions can be noticed.
Of course, spinel without any eye-visible inclusions is highly valued.
Spinels may vary in different shapes and cutting styles. You may often see that the most fine-quality rough is cut in non-standard sizes to save weight.
Spinel is available in different carat weight but availability drops and prices rise sharply for fine red, pink, and blue stones above five carats.
Despite the few heat treated samples, that have been reported in trade magazines, the vast majority of spinel on the market, is believed, to be natural.
BE AWARE OF SYNTHETIC SPINEL AND ITS IMITATIONS.
Burma, Tanzania (Mahenge), Tajikistan, Vietnam, Sri Lanka are countries for great spinel specimens.
