About Spinel and Peridot

Spinel and peridot are storied gems, steeped in history and folklore. Spinel, chemically known as magnesium aluminum oxide, is famed for its rich colors, especially the coveted 'balas ruby' red. Peridot, or iron magnesium silicate, captivates with its unique olive-green hue. Historically, spinel was believed to instill courage, while peridot was considered a protector against evil spirits. Both are doubly refractive, offering a depth of sparkle that's distinctively alluring, adding to their rich and fascinating appeal.
