Deep Pink/Red Spinel
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 12-11-06 , 04:47 PM

 


$500

Item sold
 

Maybe a little Orangish thrown in there for good measure. The orangish color is more evident in incandescent or sun lighting. This stone weighs 2.03 carats and measures 8.2mm x 6.2mm x 5.2mm deep. This would make an excellent ring stone as the proportions are just right, the color is excellent without being too brash, (I just said that to get a rise out of folks. I'm not sure that any natural stone can have a color that's too brash). In any case I think that this is one great gem stone, in a perfect size at a really fine price.

Now your playin my tune. Spinels are my favorite gemstone. There is just something about them. That one looks to be a beauty.
Most of the ones i've seen show a more red color in incadescent light with fluorescent and natural light bringing out the orangish hues.
I'm with you about a natural stone not able to be to "brash"
The price looks to be very good too. I may have to pick that one up if it sits around long.
Did you have any trouble polishing it ?? I have heard spinels can sometimes be tough to get a good polish.

I didn't polish this one Doug. This was cut in Asia and I bought it from a supplier in this country. The cut is not perfect, but it is very, very good... considering the equipment they work with it's great. I bought it with the intent of re-cutting it, but it's so nice now that re-cutting wouldn't add enough to offset the loss in weight, (I'm not really sure that re-cutting would add anything except to lighten the stone, which I don't think would be all that great).

You know I've never had a problem polishing anything in the last couple of years. Not bragging, it's just that I've whittled down the number of laps and processes that I use to the bare minimum based on what works for me. Right now I use three laps to cut and polish unless the stone is a sapphire in which case I use four laps. The whole key is getting a good prepolish with no underlying damage from trying to cut too fast.

It's a beauty. I would LOVE to own a red spinel some day. I hope I'm lucky enough to do so one day.

Ronda I'll bet Michaels spinel would look heavenly with those 50pt oval red pink spinels you have. A thin diamond halo going around all three stones. hmmmmmm
