Jewelry, Gems, & Minerals/Old Ring
Hello! My great aunt recently gave me an old jewelry box containing this ring, teeth, and other assorted goodies. :S The whole thing was tarnished and completely black. After cleaning it up, I fell in love. I've been kind of curious about what kind of stone it is (or glass). It changes from pale pink to a bright pink depending on the lighting. I live in a rural area and have not taken it to any specialists. Thank you for your time.
You have a great old ring, it is silver and the stone is a mystery to me. The only way to identify it is to test it. Since I can't do that you would need to take it to someone who can do gem identification. It looks like a synthetic color change gem of some kind, like spinel or sapphire. Good Luck
