BLACK SPINEL
Hardness -- 8

Black Spinel is one of the purest and most lustrous of the black gemstones. Although it is totally opaque, gems that are cut as normal faceted stones are very beautiful and look like the very best black diamond. It is an 8 on the Mohs hardness scale so these gems can be used in any type of jewelry setting for everyday use. This material is very hard to photograph and the gemstones really look much better than the pictures show. If you are interested in buying any of these beautiful gems, please contact me with an offer.
