Where to buy?

For Spinel check what Amazon has to offer. You'll usually find quite a selection from many different vendors. Worth a check. For other high quality gemstones (Rubies, Saphhires, Emeralds) and especially Diamonds, I highly recommend JamesAllen.

Face-up Size

The face-up size depends on the shape of the gem, its weight and the proportions of the cut. Face-up area is a measure of the size of the gem when viewed from above (as set in a ring). It tells you how big the gem is at the girdle plane.
