History of Spinels Stone

The spinel family is composed of a species known as spinel and also known as another name of corundum. This mineral is an opaque, black or brown variety of aluminium oxide (aluminium oxide), often coloured with chromium oxides. Today, spinels are usually found in shades of red or pink, but in their purest form, spinel is colourless. Pure spinel was first described by René Just Haüy in 1791 and it was given its name from spina meaning spine because its crystals were like a honeycomb when viewed through an optical instrument called a goniometer that can be used to measure angles on crystals and minerals at that time.

How to Care for a Spinel Stone

Clean your spinel with water and mild soap or detergent. Avoid harsh cleaning agents as they may stain your stone. After use, wipe down with a soft, dry cloth to remove any dust that may have accumulated. Keep your spinel in a secure setting to avoid falls and scuffs that can damage its lustre or shape. Store it in a secure place when not in use, preferably somewhere dark where it will not be disturbed. Spinel is very durable but can chip or crack if dropped or scratched against hard surfaces so take care to be extra careful when storing and handling your spinel gemstone.

How to Check Spinel Stone is real or not?

Real spinel stone will be very clean and also have a kind of lustre, which makes it shine and look very attractive. Real spinel stones are also very hard and durable; they are not easily breakable even after falling from a high height. The hardness of Spinel stone is known to be 8 on the Mohs scale, which is approximately equal to Corundum (9) and Diamond (10). Other characteristics include a black streak in powdered form, an intense red streak in FeCl3, no effect on polarized light. Real spinel has a relatively high value when compared to other gemstones of the same colour; therefore people often fake them with glass or plastic pieces. There are certain tests that you can use to identify real Spinel stones.
