Custom cut black spinel
About a month ago, I had Doug from Bespoke Gems cut me a 6.5mm black spinel. I can't say enough good things about Doug. He is really cool. He does custom cuts. He did this for me, the cut is called mini-mint.

I kept forgetting to post the glamour shots he sent me, so here they are!

RE: Custom cut black spinel
@OoohShiny If it can be done, I would like to take the ruby out of the 3 stone I bought from JooJoo and replacing it with this.

@ JooJooBee4 It seems pretty opaque to me. Well, at least I can't really see through it anyway. It's so dark. Haha! Though, it was really hard to tell while holding it with my fingers. I think it will be easier to really look at it once it's set.

What I like about black spinel is that it is not treated to get the color. It is naturally that black.

I want to take the ruby out of the ring I bought from you and put this in it. Big Grin
