DescriptionFINE GEMSTONE: UNTREATED VIVID BURGUNDY SPINEL - 11.94 CT.
The name Spinel is assumed to be a derivative of the Latin word, spina, which means "thorn" - an allusion to the pointed crystal octahedral shape typical of Spinel. This fancy, natural Spinel is eye-clean and has a vivid burgundy red color with purple highlights. It is quite a brilliant stone, due to the relatively high refractive index of Spinel, with intense color saturation. Testing by the GIA Gemological Laboratory certifies that there is no evidence of heat-treating. This well cut cushion gemstone measures 14.47 x 11.27 x 9.28 mm, weighs 11.94 carats, and is in excellent condition.
Documentation: GIA Certificate #2131723081
