Black spinel stone is a rare gemstone made up of hard vitreous magnesium aluminium oxide or magnesium aluminate. Specifically, black spinel is one of the rarest minerals that comes from the Spinel family and is a true gemstone often confused with black tourmaline. It's said that the name 'Spinel' comes from the Latin, 'spina' meaning thorn - this refers to the sharp crystal formations it's made up of.

Black spinel is usually mined along with ruby and sapphire, which is why they share so many similar properties. Spinel is most commonly found and mined in Cambodia, Burma, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. Although traces of Spinel have been found across Brazil, Afghanistan, Madagascar, Nepal and Nigeria.
Mohs rating: 8 on the hardness scale
Character: Mostly found as water worn pebbles, they can also occur as octahedral crystal formations
Luster: Vitreous
Clarity: Good quality spinel should have no inclusions but when inclusions occur, a star effect (asterism) can be the result
Chemical treatment: Not usually required although lighter coloured Spinel stones may require chemical treatment
Colour: Aside from the deep black hue, Spinel stones also occur in a range of colours, including rich reds, pinks, purples, light to dark blue tones, and amber and yellow hues.

Faceted spinel stones are considered more valuable than the more commonly found corundum formations of the stone. Unsightly inclusions will also bring down the value of the stone considerably.

Almost all spinel stones are formed by metamorphic activity that occurs when molten rock combines with limestone or dolomites, leaving behind a deposit that resembles a durable mineral within the rock. This mineral is then mined to leave behind a rare black gemstone that has similar qualities to rubies and sapphires.
