Under Long-Wave UV light, it glows a Reddish-Orange as do red & pink spinels. Spinel is one of few gemstones that require no special treatments and its beautiful, vivid colors and clarity are entirely natural. Excellent for use in jewelry because it is durable and registers an 8 on MOHs Hardness Scale. Photo Notes: Those which show this stone as Purple with Magenta were shot with Incandescent lighting.Other shots have Daylight Fluorescent lighting in addition to the Incandescent i. N order to reveal the violet blues. Stamps (some partial): Eagle 3 Taxco reg. Partial (I believe V which is a BRV mark addressed in Hougarts book), 925 (silver purity), & a partial hecho en mexico.
Spinel Gemstones were not well known in the Fifties and much more affordable than they are in today's market. Superb Vintage condition with very minor wear considering the age! No chipping on the Spinel. Please view all photos to judge for yourself. Astounding colors and my photos cannot begin to do it justice!
Be prepared to address the many comments & compliments that will surely come your way when sporting this spectacular ring! Your order will be carefully packaged to ensure a safe arrival.
