"If you have an August birthday but don't love peridot, John Hardy has your back with August's other birthstone, Spinel," the store wrote in a Facebook post.

"The Bali based jewelry brand uses Black Spinel to stunning effect throughout their line," the fourth-generation family-owned business added.

According to the Gemological Institute of America, spinel is a durable jewelry gem composed of magnesium aluminum oxide, shaped like back-to-back pyramids. The institute notes that these crystals are so perfect that in Myanmar, they are known to be "polished by the spirits." 

Spicer Greene Jewelers added that their John Hardy spinel collection could be shopped at their website.
