Spinel was an underappreciated gem until more recent years. The demand for alternatives to ruby has been rekindled, providing more demand for spinel’s rich red color and history. In ancient times, mines in southeast Asia yielded exceptionally large spinel crystals. These crystals became treasured property of kings and emperors, often becoming spoils of war. Because of its rich red color, spinel has long been mistaken for ruby by emperors and monarchs.
