Lab Creared Blue Spinel# 113
Synthetic spinel, was first produced accidentally during an attempt to make a satisfactory blue synthetic sapphire by the Verneuil process. Instead of the blue sapphire they discovered synthetic spinels like Synthetic Blue Spinel. These lab created blue spinel are exact copy of their Natural counterparts. The real Blue Spinel is very expensive but the top quality synthetic blue spinel is very cheap in comparison.
Synthetic spinel is widely used because it is slightly softer than synthetic corundum, it can be fashioned more rapidly and less expensively. Secondly, several of the colors in which it is made are better imitation for a number of natural stones than those made in synthetic corundum.
