GENERAL INFO ON SPINEL FROM Geology.com
It occurs in a variety of colors
(colorless, pink, red, orange, blue, purple, brown, black). The colors that
imitate ruby and sapphire are the most popular; along with an orange-red color
that known as "flame spinel".
Gem-quality red and blue spinels are very rare. They are much less abundant than rubies and sapphires of similar quality and color. Even with equivalent beauty and greater rarity their prices are much lower than ruby and sapphire. This is an example of how rarity has not determined the price. Spinel is not as valuable because it is not as popular. Spinel has not been strongly promoted by the gem and jewelry trade because its supply is limited and unreliable.
Occasionally an exceptional spinel or a jewelry item of historical significance is sold at sale for a very high price. One necklace containing eleven bright red spinels, totaling 1,132 carats and inscribed by Mughal emperors sold for over $5 million. [6, photo]
The first synthetic spinel was produced in 1847 by Jacques-Joseph Ebelmen, a French Chemist.  Commercial production of synthetic spinels was very limited in the 1800s. However, in the 1930s synthetic spinels in a wide variety of colors were produced to imitate popular gemstones such as aquamarine, zircon, tourmaline, emerald, chrysoberyl and ruby. The colors were produced by introducing metals in trace amounts into the stone by the addition of: cobalt oxide (blue), manganese (yellow), chromium oxide (green), and iron (pink). Careful chemical procedures allowed the manufacturers to control the color of the stones.
'S DEFINITION AND EXPLANATION ABOUT TERMS FOR STONES:
What is the Difference between Lab Created, Synthetic andSimulated Gemstones?
Lab created, Lab grown and synthetic are synonymous terms. To useeither of these terms, according to the FTC, the gemstone must be identical to the natural in every way: Chemical Composition,Hardness, and Optically.
Below is an excerpt from the FTC guidelines for gemstone sales for your reference.
"It is unfair or deceptive to use the word; laboratory-grown, laboratory-created, [manufacturer name]-created, or syntheticwith the name of any natural stone to describe any industry product unless such industry product has essentially the same optical, physical, and chemical properties as the stone named."
The key is that Lab Created and Synthetic are identical to the natural. Only difference being it is not from the earth.
No Lab Gemstone is RARE, as the rough can be made anytime.
