About this stoneIf you've ever lived where lilacs bloom, you know that they create havoc every spring.
The intensely fragrant lilac is native to the mountains of ancient Persia, and its capacity to flower is dependent upon a season of equally intense cold. When the lilac finally opens its buds, bees, butterflies, and anyone within a whiff know that spring has, at last, arrived again.
We feel the same about this brilliant purple-pink stone. Its luxurious carat-size and graceful oval cut are a hard-won treasure, formed over the course of millions of years of intense heat and pressure.
And just as spring awakens the earth, the world is waking up to the potential of spinel gemstones for their vivid natural color, which is by definition untreated, unheated, and not altered in any way.
Spinels are also a very durable stone for setting into rings, given their natural hardness.
Any piece of high jewelry designed around this exceptional gemstone is sure to become a favorite. Call us when you feel a case of lilac fever coming on.
