The immense red gemstone set in the Imperial State Crown of England, once thought to be a ruby, is actually a 170 carat spinel. Owned by Moorish and Spanish Kings, it came into the possession of Edward, Prince of Wales by 1367. Held by a series of British monarchs, the so-called “Black Prince’s Ruby” was finally set into the Imperial State Crown for the coronation of King George VI in 1937.
