Tips for Choosing
Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.
Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.
Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

Red Spinel supports the energies of movement, rhythm, and strength in the physical body. Its energy helps optimize the body’s rhythms, thus benefiting the heart, lungs, muscles, circulatory vessels, digestive system, and other vital functions. By supporting the forces that power the cells’ mitochondria, Red Spinel improves the energetic capacity of nearly every tissue in the body.
The life force—the force that enlivens, sustains, and nourishes everything that lives—is made up of spectrums of color rays. Being continually supplied with and nourished by a proper balance of color rays is vital to every aspect of our health. Red Spinel removes the energy blockages that prevent life-giving color rays from entering and nourishing the body.
Each color ray is particularly healing and nourishing to a certain system in the body. For the red ray, this “life system” includes the muscles, tendons, and fascia—parts of the body that help make physical movement possible. Red Spinel’s ability to remove blockages—combined with its emphasis on the red life system and strengthening of the root chakra—powerfully supports energy production and optimal movement in the body. (Learn more about color rays.)
Red Spinel’s ability to remove blockages to the color rays in the physical and supraphysical bodies will gently enhance detoxification of the body’s tissues, particularly those of the muscles. It may also very slightly increase the body’s ability to absorb sunlight and other light rays. (See “Precautions for Wearing Red Spinel” in the How to Use tab.)
The Rhythm of Life
Movement is at the heart of physical life. The movement of energy, of electrons, and all the systems within the body keep us alive and let us move through space. The ease, range, and robustness of movement define much of what we consider physical health.
Red Spinel supports both optimal rhythms and the circulation of life force at both the cellular level and organ-system level. As a result, strength and stamina are enhanced.
Movement of the body is a series of contracting and relaxing rhythms. The functioning of many organs depends on the ability to optimally tighten and relax, or contract and expand. For example, the alternating tightening and relaxation of our skeletal muscles lets us stand, walk, run, and move through space. These rhythms also determine how well we breathe, digest, detoxify, and function in other ways. Red Spinel encourages all of our muscles to relax and contract—i.e., to function—optimally.
This is a great benefit for a wide range of physical functions. It is especially beneficial for any sort of exercise that involves physical movement, whether it is done for athletic prowess or overall health. Thus, it can support athletes as well as anyone who wants to maintain physical strength as they age.
Red Spinel is particularly helpful in recovery from an injury, illness, or sedentary lifestyle that has prevented maintenance of muscular or cardiovascular health. It will support someone wanting to regain health if these systems have been low-functioning for some time.
The Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems
At the center of our ability to move and use energy at the organ-system level is the cardiovascular system. All of our muscles and organs—and our ability to stay alive—depends on a constant supply of blood. The heart’s rhythmic contractions and relaxations, as well as those of the blood vessels, regulate the flow of life-giving substances and carry away the metabolic wastes of our cells.
Our cardiovascular system is intimately paired with the expansion and contraction of our lungs. This pairing provides the life-giving oxygen we need for our mitochondria. Red Spinel supports healthy rhythms within and between these interlocking systems in a way that enhances the body’s ability to maintain their processes in more optimal ways. Thus, when wearing Red Spinel, you may find that you are breathing more easily, freely, and deeply.
The Mitochondrial Powerhouse
The mitochondria are the organelles inside our cells that create ATP—the molecules that cells use as an energy source and that all of our body’s functions use to build, heal, repair, and run the cellular machinery. Red Spinel supports the mitochondria’s function and, by extension, the energetic capacity of nearly every tissue in the body. When you wear Red Spinel, you may experience this as increased energy and vitality.
Some tissues are especially rich in mitochondria. These include the heart and muscles, which depend on a rapid and efficient energy production to function optimally. As we age, mitochondria become less efficient and less numerous. Many environmental toxins and other factors can also negatively affect our mitochondria. Red Spinel creates an energetic antidote to some of these inevitable threats to mitochondrial health and thus helps increase our energy production and supply.
The color of therapeutic-quality Red Spinel is a deep, bright red that is close to the red of the rainbow. The more true-red the gems are, the stronger their energetic effects will be. Spinel gems that are more distinctly pink than red are not considered therapeutic Red Spinel and have different energetic properties.
A small number of inclusions in Red Spinel do not interfere with its energetic work. The Spinel energy bypasses the other mineral.
Any kind of artificial treatments will render Red Spinel non-therapeutic. While most high-quality Spinel is untreated, some heat-treated Red Spinel has appeared on the market and should be avoided for therapeutic use. Gemisphere’s Red Spinel is completely natural and free of all treatments.
The finest dark Red Spinel can look like fine-quality Ruby. To distinguish our Red Spinel and Ruby necklaces, we have included a small gold bead on either side of the clasp in our Red Spinel necklaces.

One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use a Red Spinel necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day.
Because of Red Spinel’s promotion of movement in the body, it is best used during dynamic hours of activity and not during rest or sleep. Therefore, Red Spinel should be worn only during the day and taken off at night to allow your body to return to a quiet and restful state.
A solid Red Spinel necklace is a strong therapeutic gemstone tool. Therefore, its energy may be difficult for some people to integrate easily or quickly. When first working with a solid Red Spinel necklace, we recommend wearing it for one to three hours a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish during the day’s active hours and taking it off to sleep.
It is always wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the Red Spinel by wearing it for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase the time as described above.
Best Worn Alone
A solid Red Spinel necklace generally works best when worn alone. However, it will pair well with a Mother of Pearl necklace to combine a soothing, nurturing energy with Red Spinel’s strengthening effects.
Precautions for Wearing Red Spinel
Red Spinel’s ability to remove blockages to the color rays in the physical and supraphysical bodies will gently enhance detoxification of the tissues. It may also very slightly increase the body’s ability to absorb sunlight and other light rays. Therefore, avoid wearing Red Spinel in bright sunlight with unprotected skin for long periods.
Also, remove Red Spinel when undergoing light therapies of any kind, including infrared treatments, saunas, or other heat therapies. Although Red Spinel’s mild enhancement may be too gentle for anyone but the very sensitive to notice, this is a good general precaution for reducing the chance of excessive exposure to the effects of light, heat, and infrared therapies.
Red Spinel should not be worn during radiation or chemotherapy treatments.
Cleanse Red Spinel Regularly
To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Red Spinel necklace. Learn more about these methods.
Plant Rejuvenation: Every 1 – 2 days of wear, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.
Salt Bed: Every 2 – 3 days of wear, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.
Water Rinse: Every 1 – 2 days of wear, rinse the gems in alternating cool and warm water. Avoid temperature extremes. Occasionally clean the gems with a mild, natural soap before rinsing.
Sunbath: Every 2 - 3 weeks of wear, lay the gems in sunlight for a maximum of 10 minutes at a time.
Special Note: Handle with extra care. While Red Spinel is a relatively hard stone, because of its crystalline structure, it shatters easily if dropped or hit. Store it away from hard surfaces, including other gemstones.
When Your Necklace First Arrives
When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
