This is a super nice, ULTRA RARE, blue spinel from Tanzania.  The color on this stone shifts notably under different lighting conditions.  It is a soft blue in diffused sunlight, shifting to more of a medium-dark sapphire blue in strong sunlight.    Under fluorescent lighting the stone appears quite purple, with a blending of the blue and purple hues under incandescent.   Similar to tanzanite, this stone also exhibits a red flash.

Cathy’s Note:  Caution when handling: Due to the EXTREMELY high, PERFECT polish on this stone…it’s slippery!  Hold on tight…it nearly got away from me a few times!
