I don't think there is a curse on the Timur. That's just legend and lore. If there was a curse or other negative properties related to spinel, I'm sure it would have been removed from the British Imperial Crown by now.

Oh the Timur Ruby is not set in any of the Crown Jewels, but is still set in its original necklace - I doubt that it has ever been worn .

Thank you for any help!!
Tsar Nicholas II sold the Sapphire to finance a hospital for the Russian Army during the First World War.
