Raw Black Spinel

Origin :  Burma, Brazil,  United States, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam

chakras:  root chakra           Hardness  : 8


Properties :  Spinels are often small in size, but very very powerful  !!

The Black Spinel has almost the same properties as the  Black tourmaline , but much more intense  ! It is a powerful shield against all negative energies and psychic attacks. Perfect for grounding, it helps us achieve an easy return to full consciousness, promoting clear and structured thoughts.

The Black Spinel also helps us to go through with our goals by giving us all the courage and energy necessary to achieve them. It promotes the balance of the Chakras and supports spiritually in the trials of life. It is therefore an ideal stone for people who tend to destabilize easily in the face of verbal aggression and negative emotions from others. It is also perfect for depressive people, because it disperses and dissolves the negative creations forged by our mind. Spinel is also said to encourage moderation and calm excess. At the physical level, it is a stone that strengthens the muscles, promotes detoxification of the blood, intestines and skin. It would also be a great help during fasting.  The Black Spinel can be worn on the Self or placed in a dwelling (in the entrance, near the windows or at the 4 corners of the place).


Good to know  :  If you are already struggling to bear the  Obsidian will make it very difficult for you to work with a Spinel.

Purification:  Unnecessary or very rarely in pure or salt water

Reload:  Sun  (Preference: full day) ,  Rock crystal cluster


Red Spinel (Ceylanite)


In its finest quality, the Spinel is considered as precious a stone as the Ruby or the Sapphire . This is also why for centuries, this variety of Spinel was confused with Ruby. Its properties are also very close, but with a greatly increased power.  ! Today, this small red stone is much rarer than Ruby and much cheaper too.  

At one level, the Red Spinel has practically the same virtues as its sister, the Black Spinel.  : it revitalises, strengthens the muscles,  promotes blood detoxification,  intestines and  skin. Helps against insensitivity of the limbs and numbness.

Gives courage and determination in the most difficult times. Brings a strong and positive thought structure. Allows you to assert yourself and defend your opinions.


Good to know  : Red Spinel is not suitable for hypertensive, angry, authoritarian or violent people.


Purification:  Unnecessary or very rarely in pure or salt water
