Price is per 16 1/2-inch string of very-many 2mm beads.

Spinel beads are fantastic value for money, because they are considered equal to ruby and sapphire and are always natural, never heated or treated.

Many Crown Jewels were found to be Spinel rather than Ruby. Spinel is almost as hard as ruby, but contains fewer inclusions and more fire and intense colour.

It's a hard glassy mineral forming in clear, black, or intense coloures. Spiritually it's considered to be a powerful, wise and gentle tool.

The name is thought to originate from the Latin 'spina', meaning thorn, referring to spinel's pointed crystal. Mined mainly in Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Burma.
