Spinel cluster
Thumbnail, 1.4 x 1.2 x 0.8 cm
Pein Pyit, Mogok, Mandalay Division, Burma

A rare cluster, and with glassy luster, this piece stands out amongst a crowd of the more common single floater crystals. Glassy and gemmy along with exhibiting a cherry red color, this spinel specimen features a large octahedron, 1.4 cm in length, which has two smaller spinel crystals attached. Another spinel that is of competition quality. It is a floater, complete all around.
