Now this is truly a fabulous loose natural Tanzanian spinel with a very unique colour. It is something quite special and the colour I would describe as a purple pink lilac hue. Its one of those colours that is tricky to pin down as it has this subtle interplay of the different hues and the result is breathtaking. It is a beautiful gem in every sense of the word. It has been expertly cut and polished and the proportions are ideal. The square cushion design is a classic and this makes it very easy for a jeweller to set. I would think this spinel should be set with a halo of diamonds to really make a setting that is out of this world. A first class Tanzanian spinel.
