Spinels occur in a broad range of colors but they are seldom greenish and never yellow. As a result of their resemblance to rubies, red spinels are clearly the most valuable and sought after but there are few stones to be found. Prices for fine large Burmese red spinels of over 5 carats in weight can retail for over $20,000 per carat. Tanzanian stones are slightly cheaper and just as nice, but hardly available these days.

Buy fine loose spinel gemstones at wholesale prices from one of the largest online catalogs. Custom spinel jewelry service available.
