Gray Spinel Lady Captain’s Ring

Item #: G2766

One of the World’s Prettiest Gems
That No One Knows About – Spinel

For three days, while Keith and I were on the Thai – Burma border searching for jade, Keith kept bringing up a group of gems he had seen the week before- a thousand carats of natural gems each around a carat in size. Spinel is an obscure, rare gem that is invisible, unspoken of, and rarely shown in jewelry stores anywhere in the world. This lack of interest worldwide seems to be universal.

Spinel is a sister gem to sapphire. Spinel is hard, tough, bright, and brilliant with sophisticated colors slightly to the right of sapphire; mauve, gray, pink, orange, yellow, and selling for prices that would make anyone think it was still the 1950s. This gem was selling for prices less than the cost of cutting and yet no one was buying, except possibly the two crazy Americans in the city of Chanthaburi, Thailand.

Keith said he had tried this gem in the past and he simply couldn’t sell it, but he said this lot was so beautiful, “I want you to see it. You have to see it.” An hour or two would go by and this thousand carats of gems would come up again. He said he wouldn’t buy it but thought maybe I might be able to find a way to explain the allure of this forgotten gem to the general public.

We continued to talk about it for three days. It almost felt like he was setting me up. But I know Keith, he’s a straight shooter. When we got back to the city Keith tried to contact the lady that had the parcel of gems. Days went by, nothing. He called again and again, nothing. Days became a week and we’d had no response.

“Someone must have bought the entire lot” Keith concluded. Then, on the next to the last day of my stay, she showed up. The gem paper was opened and before me were a thousand carats of gems. Over 900 individual gems in the most amazing array of colors I’d ever seen. I had no idea what I would do with them. I decided I simply had to have them. I went through and selected 200 of the best. Keith then offered to do a high grading review. He pulled 70 out. I double checked his discards and agreed. I ended up with 130 of the most amazing collection of exotic gem colors I’ve ever acquired. The next morning another lot of natural gem spinel arrived from a different source. It was Keith’s turn now. He chose nearly a hundred gems.

I believe that someday the world will wake up to this gem, spinel. The world is still asleep right now. Anyone who chooses now will look like a brilliant early Apple, Microsoft, Google or Amazon investor. But don’t consider this for its appreciation potential; consider it for its beauty, its rare exotic beauty.
