This is a fine quality pear shaped grey spinel stone set into my original ouroboros design.
The elegant circularity of the ouroboros resembles the continual rhythm of the universe, and its association with eternal love. The gemstone is mostly grey with beautiful hints of purple.
Gemstone size: 9 x 6mm
Gemstone weight: 1.33 ct
Origin: Grey Spinel Thailand
The Ouroboros is an ancient circular symbol of a snake devouring it's own tail which denotes the infinity or wholeness, self-reflexivity or cyclicality especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return. It reminds us of the eternal nature of energy which cannot be destroyed, only transformed.
The gemstone is not heated or color treated.
