  • Catalogue Essay

    Spinel comes in a variety of hues and red is the most covetable. Most red spinels show secondary colour including orange, brown or purple. A pure red hue of medium to medium dark saturation is, therefore, considered the rarest and finest of all. Originating from the reputed gem gravels of Burma, the current 16.32-carat red spinel possesses a saturated body colour, combined with crystal clarity and fiery brilliance.
