Natural spinels are highly regarded because they don't require heat-treating to obtain their hue like sapphires and rubies do, and are superior in toughness. They are expected to rise sharply in value in the near future as this becomes more widely known! They are ancient stones, in use as jewels (and called 'rubies') since the medieval era!
