Spinel is a rich gemstone that ranges in colour from pale pink to deepest black. Frequently referred to as the "great impostor" in gemmology, its shade of black is a rare find. Several of the jewels on Queen Elizabeth II's crown are in fact spinels.
Spinel is historically associated with love and helps the wearer put his/her ego aside in devotion to their significant other. It is also thought to encourage passion and increase the duration of life. Black spinel in particular is said to be a protective stone that assists in re-establishing relationships and resolving issues, and believed to ease sadness.
Spinel is rated 8 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, and is both very durable and suitable for everyday jewelry wear.
Citrine is a variety of quartz, with colours ranging from very pale to dark yellow to light orange to brown. Believed to bring prosperity, wealth and success, citrine has also been called the "money stone."
Quartz is rated 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
