Color Change Spinel - Sri Lanka

Captivating oval Spinel from Sri Lanka transitions from a mesmerizing twilight blue to a delicate lilac, boasting a mixed cut that enhances its allure.

Gems exhibiting color change are undeniably extraordinary, and this one stands as a shining example! Amidst its magnificent sparkle, the minimal visible inclusions hardly register.

Color change Spinel is formed when chromium and iron impurities are present in the mineral spinel. These elements absorb different wavelengths of light depending on the lighting conditions, which is what causes the color change effect.  And only a small number of mines in the world produce Spinel!
