Grape Expectations. Deep purple, as royal as any Amethyst, defines this exceptionally large, rare Purple Spinel weighing more than 9 carats! In the ancient world, purple was the color of kings and emperors. Only the ruling class was permitted to wear purple, because purple dye was so costly-- the color was squeezed from a shellfish called the murex, and ordinary people would be fined for wearing the royal shade. Those days are behind us, so claim this violet treasure for your collection!
