v lt incl, from Sri Lanka. Cobalt spinels have become very difficult to obtain as the few deposits in Sri Lanka that produced them have been exhausted. This gem display a dark, intense blue hue and contains three small crystal inclusions. We have seen some very small cobalt spinels listed as originating in Viet Nam but have seen nothing of size.
