Spinel Many famous rubies in crown jewels around the world are actually spinels. The most famous is the Black Prince's ruby, and the The Timor Ruby. Spinel was recognized as a distinct gem variety only in the late 19th century through hardness and X-ray tests. Until then were mixed with Rubies due to similarity in color and brilliance.
