This is the new pink spinel from Gene. I feel so lucky to get it! The neon pink color is something I have never expected from a gem stone, and the pictures still don''t do justice to its true color because the neon is very hard to capture. Maybe I should send it to mochi, our resident photographer?

I think all spinel collectors should consider getting one of these.


First, pictures taken under indirect daylight.

Last picture for now - this baby really stands out in a crowd, as shown in the spinel group picture here.

ENJOY!

karee, thanks for your kind words. I have no idea about setting except I want it as a ring (pretty much the case for 99% of my stones because I need to SEE them)

That is a beautiful stone! Congrats! And I would definitely put it in a ring as well so I could look at it. So pretty!

It looks to be the best stone in your collection; the saturation is vivd and the hue is a wonderful pure pink with the right tone. You did good.

marcyc, akmiss, Lori, mr. ma re, FrekeChild, innerkitten, mochi, cinnamon, mercoledi, Chrono, LaurenThePartier, icekid, klewis,

Thanks for all your kind words and remarks!

It sure is my favorite spinel, and the top 3 of all stones (that is a lot harder to name, and dependent on my mood)


Oh, the specs. 1.04ct, 6.52 x 5.27mm. I am also attaching the vendor picture, which in my opinion, didn''t do justice.


Now, I''ve also taken some group shots of my garnet and tourmaline collection, any one care to see them here?

I forgot to point out, the picture on top left corner on this collage is the most accurate on the color.

Yingh... I want to see more picture.


I just noticed that the ring is the bezel ring in white. It''s very attractive. What were you going to set in it??

It's so nice to see a perfect saturation in a spinel without any brown, orange or grey. I love it (never thought I would hear myself say that about a spinel
).
