The origin of the name spinel is unknown. It may be a derivative of the Latin word "spinella" or from a Greek word meaning spark, in reference to the bright red or orange color of some crystals although spinel comes in a vast array of colors.
Spinel is the great impostor of gemstone history: many famous rubies in crown jewels around the world are actually spinel.
Spinel is thought to protect the owner from harm, to reconcile differences, and to soothe away sadness.
