Frequently Asked Questions
Does GIA grade spinels?

GIA doesn’t grade spinels. GIA Gemological Identification Reports assess the characteristics of a mounted or loose spinel (weight, measurements, shape, cutting style and color), say whether it is natural or synthetic, and indicate any detectable treatments.
