The spinel used in jewellery is a small part of a group of minerals that share the same crystal structure. Not all of them form transparent crystals suitable for jewellery use, however. Spinel offers a range of hues, from orange to intense “stoplight” red, vibrant pink, and all shades of purple, blue, and violet through bluish green.
Intense reds and pinks are caused by traces of chromium. The higher the chromium content, the stronger the red hue. Orange and purple stones owe their colour to a mixture of iron and chromium.
