Step Cut Cornered Square Cut Spinel, Tanzania, 0.97 cts

This is a bright, brilliant stone that shifts in color from a sky blue to a bright purple blue much like a lighter tanzanite. Spinels of this color are also known as “periwinkle”. I’m not sure what caused the pink flashes in the photo. The other blue and purple blue colors are fairly accurate though.
