Here is a very rare royal blue spinel from Burma. This particular hue is very rare in a spinel and in gemstones in general. It is the colour of an old cobolt medicine bottle, if you have ever seen one you’ll know exactly what I mean. It is a very distinctive colour and is also called royal blue. This gem is small and would have been “native cut” from a very small stone most likely found in river gravel. This is definitely one for the collector and sometimes some of the rarest gems are the smallest ones.
