Pink Spinel is a gemstone that comes in a range of pink hues, from light pastel to deep rose. The color of Pink Spinel is usually described using terms such as "bubblegum", "cotton candy", "strawberry", or "fuchsia". The color can vary depending on the stone's origin, with spinels from Sri Lanka tending to have a lighter, more pastel hue, while those from Burma can have a deeper, richer color. It is important to note that the color saturation and hue can also be affected by factors such as lighting and the presence of other minerals in the stone.
Natural pink spinel is a gemstone that is in great demand today. It is important to note that despite the fact that pink spinels are more widely available on the global market than reds, the demand for them still greatly exceeds the supply. This leads to a steady rise in spinel prices. We may see an annual growth of 10-20% for the top gemstones. This puts pink spinel on a par with such investment-attractive stones as red spinel, uncut sapphires, rubies, etc.
The price of a noble rose spinel depends to a large extent on its purity and, most importantly, its color. The most valuable and rare varieties are those with a deep pink, fuchsia, and rose-red hues, but most often, one will find a lighter coloring or a violet component on the market. Another undoubtedly important pricing factor is the weight and origin of the stone. The most expensive and brightest examples of pink spinel come from Tanzania (the field Mahenge) and Burma (Myanmar, Mogok mine), lighter jewelry spinel often come from Vietnam, Sri Lanka or Tajikistan (Pamir).
