Hello PS friends. I have become fascinated with pink and red spinel's since discovering them on this forum. However, I have a pink gemstone that I bought several years ago in a different city than where I now live. I have purchased two pink spinel's recently from respected PS vendors and when I compare the color to that of the old pink stone I have they are very very similar. Problem is I never kept the paperwork on the old pink stone and I can't remember what I was told it was when I bought it. My mind keeps telling me it was a pink tourmaline for some reason, yet I can't be sure. Is there a way that I could get identification of it without sending it off to a lab ? It is set in a ring so don't know if that makes it more difficult to id or not. Any help would be appreciated .
