Not exactly gem material and free of flaws but this piece is an incredibly fine colored spinel! It’s a kind of red that resembles a ruby and “fiery red” in nature. Best viewed in daylight, it’s fluorescence make the stone even more desirable. Suited for antique or made to order fine jewelry, this piece is certainly a treasure to behold and keep forever. A quick review of the spinels sold in Christies and Sotheby’s will definitely make this bauble look very inexpensive.
