  • Demantoid is the rarest and most valuable of the garnets, with an unusually high luster, brilliance, and exceptional fire due to its high dispersion. It was called  "green diamond" in the past; in fact, the name 'demantoid' means "diamond-like."

Spinel illustration Leon MegeSpinel is a natural gemstone that comes in every color of the rainbow. White spinel is colorless, but light-blue or light-grey varieties are popular center stones for engagement rings.

Due to its excellent hardness (8 on Mohs scale), spinel works exceptionally well as a diamond substitute. A spinel's girdle can be left exposed without worrying that it will get chipped immediately. Spinel works well in five- or three-stone engagement rings, as well as solitaires.

Precious red spinels have long been mistaken for rubies. For example, the Black Prince's ruby mounted in front of the British Imperial State Crown turned out to be red spinel. 

Recently spinel became August's second birthstone. Thanks to its array of colors ranging from red, orange, pink, purple, and lavender to black, spinel is a jewelry designer's dream.

Zircon is relatively hard (7.5 on Mohs scale) and has exceptional fire due to its strong dispersion. Naturally tinted light yellow-brown zircons look exactly like low-color Brazilian diamonds, so zircons were widely used as fake diamonds. Colorless zircon is known for its brilliance and fire.
