Spinels are a type of mineral that crystalizes cubically. Spinels are often referred to as rubies, but a ruby is not a spinel. Common spinels may be transparent to opaque and may possess a vitreous to dull luster. They may be colorless, but are more typically found in shades of red, lavender, blue, green, brown, black, or yellow.
