Spinel comes in many shades from transparent (colourless) to shades of pink, red, blue, yellow, green, brown and black. It brings the mind stability and happiness and reduces the symptoms of depression and harmonises the structure of chakras by healing them along the spine thus named as spinel. Black spinel is highly reflective and does not feature the same metallic overtone that many other black stones do. It’s a gorgeous deep black in appearance. They are widely found in the areas of Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Tanzania and Tajikistan.
“Tourmaline” is the name of a large group of boron silicate minerals. These minerals share a common crystal structure and similar physical properties – but vary tremendously in chemical composition. The wide range of compositions and colour zoning within crystals causes tourmaline to occur in more colours and colour combinations than any other mineral group. Tourmaline is one of the world’s most popular gemstones and it serves as a birthstone for the month of October.
