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 crystal shows faces, but is contacted on several sides as well. Nevertheless, by historical standards and for rarity points, it is significant for its size, color, and the sharp faces atop. Ex. John Saul Collection
