Pyant Gyi Mine, near Pein Pyit, Mogok Stone Tract, Burma
Thumbnail, 2.1 x 1.9 x 1.0 cm
A very rare example of this borate species, formerly known only from a few samples, mostly grains. This find in the gem district of Burma has produced world class examples of the species, for the first time. These two specimens came out from a small pocket found in 2006-2007, and are very hard to come by on the market today. This specimen shows a large crystal to 1.8 cm, very well displayed! By historical standards and for rarity points, it is significant for its size, color, and the sharp faces. Ex. John Saul Collection
