In fact, the spinel family is colorful and not only red. The four most widely known spinel varieties include the red Jedi Knights, Mahenge, Mogok Red, and the blue cobalt spines. In addition, there are many relatively small spinels that can be presented different unique shades. Let’s take a look at the color types of spinel.
The rarer the color of the spinel, the more valuable it is. Red spinel ranges in color from orange to purplish red. Among them, pure red in medium to medium dark tones is the best color of spinel. The flaming spinel seems to be burning with a passionate flame. Among them, ” Mogok Red Spinel” is the best – one is the Burma MogokPigeon Blood Red Spinel, the color of this spinel and the pigeon blood red ruby is similar, slightly darker than the Jedi Knight; the other is the Burmese flame red spinel, the color is a red with a slight reddish orange tone, and the bright orange makes the spinel look like a flame. Pink spinel is the most common, and among the pink spinels, the most popular is the neon pink. One of the rarest colors in nature, spinel is the only gem that lives up to its name such as this Name necklace. The spinel varieties of this color include the “ Jedi Spinel ” – the name comes from GIA and is carried forward in China.
However, the international color treasure industry, including all international inspection agencies including GRS and GIA, has no standard definition of the color of the “ Jedi Spinel “. The average pink spinel can’t be called ” Jedi Spinel “, because in the strict sense, the color of the Jedi Knights should be pinkish red and reddish pink instead of vivid pink. More accurately, it is red pink/pink. Add a little shade of subtle orange tones. Because the orange tone helps to enhance the brilliance of the gem itself, and the Jedi spinel has a very high chromium content, together with the unique homogenous features of the gem, it can show a high degree of neon and fluorescent. The orange-pink spinel is gentle and has a delicious “delicious” color. Nowadays, the market is called “ Padparadscha ” spinel. There is also the “ Mahenge Spinel” – a pink spinel from Tanzania with a neon look. Its color ranges from pink to red, with red, purple, pink, pink-orange, orange-pink, orange-red, red-orange tones, and a more precious neon effect with top-quality electro-optic color. The most fascinating thing about Mahenge‘s spinel is the special crystal quality brought by the rare velour slight/velvet light. Nowadays, “Mahenge Spinel” not only represents the spinel produced in the Mahenge region, but has become synonymous with high quality spinel in Tanzania.
Blue spinels range in color from purple blue to very slight greenish blue. Generally speaking, the blue spinel, which is always gray in color, is iron-colored, and the other blue tint, which is dark to black, is zinc spinel, and only cobalt spinel appears beautiful and rich blue. High quality cobalt blue spinel is also very valuable. Cobalt Spinel, as the name implies, is a spinel colored by cobalt (Co). The presence of cobalt determines the blue concentration in the spinel – usually blue or some blue with a gray or dark black tone, and ultimately determines the beauty of its appearance. The most high-quality cobalt spinel is currently produced in Vietnam. If it is a blue cobalt spinel without gray tone compared with the same level of color, the difference in value may reach 10-100 times! In general, the market demand for violet and blue-violet to purple or violet spinel is often lower than that of other rare colors. But lavender-like light blue is one of the most commercially valuable spinel colors, very rare.
