Not everyone likes the cabochon cut, but it is in this cut that the stones have a special mystery, they attract the eye with their inner glow. When they did not yet know how to distinguish spinel from ruby, it was Burmese ruby-colored spinel that was often mistaken for the “ruby” itself.

06. Cartier ring with 20.18 ct Tanzanian spinel
This ring would not be particularly remarkable if it were not for the breathtaking Tanzanian spinel of exceptional beauty and size. 20.18 carats for spinel is very rare, and when a stone comes across such a rich ruby color, it is doubly rare. Not surprisingly, the ring was sold at Sotheby’s for $ 246,000. It is interesting that large “notches” on the stone did not greatly reduce the cost in this case. Because the carat value of the stone is impressive.

But in rubies, you can notice the effect of fluorescence, for which everyone is so fond of them.
