One of the more common questions we get asked is "What's a good investment stone?", the answer is simple no gemstone is a good investment, because market uncertainties make it almost impossible to predict what prices will be a year from now or 10 years from now. Unlike diamonds, the price of colored gemstones isn't controlled by one large corporation, so it makes colored stones truly a free market economy. One of the stones that always caught my eye was spinel. Like sapphire it comes in every spectrum of the rainbow. It's a hard stone as well with a hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale (tanzanite a 7, sapphire is 9, diamond a 10), with a really nice richness to it.

This spinel was mined and cut in Sri Lanka, and a rich delicious cherry pink color. This stone has a stunning cut which gives it a lovely brilliance as well.

 

This gemstone (or gemstone that is part of this piece of gemstone jewelry) has NOT been enhanced by traditional heat treatment or any other known means. The only way to tell if a colored stone has been treated is for the stone to be analyzed by a lab. Generally only gemstone laboratories have the equipment necessary to make a qualified judgment with any certainty.

Untreated gemstones are rare and should be verified by a lab independent of the seller. A good rule of thumb is to always assume a gemstone has been enhanced, unless valid certification from a reputable laboratory is available. No one that sells jewelry or gems should be doing appraisals, certifications, or analysis. It should always be an independent third party with no vested interest in the sale.
