Spinel is the magical underdog that often gets mistaken for rubies or sapphires. They’re a special kind of stone that’s definitely worth getting to know. Spinel is a soothing stone that brings with it a calming energy. And who doesn’t want that?

Spinel actually comes in many colors, and their strengths also come color-coded. Red spinel is supposed to boost vitality, while pink and green spinels are said to fuel love and compassion. Violet spinel magnifies spiritual development, and yellow is like sunshine to the intellect.

It’s a high-energy stone and is commonly used to attract wealth and prosperity. It pulses with life and dispenses that sweet, sweet nectar in a thick, juicy smoothie, infused with vibrancy and a jolt of heartfelt positivity.

Someone once said that spinel can stabilise one to this earth plane while still choreographing a dance of energy up towards the stars.
