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.
Spectacular colors are a hot pink and Red. Also comes in a range of gorgeous pastel shades of pink blue and purple. Cobalt Spinels, are very rare, found almost exclusively in Sri Lanka. Fine Red spinels are now rarer than Rubies.
