An uncommon Spinel cluster consisting of one larger and one smaller crystal from the famous Pein-pyit Zone in Burma, like a baby on the mother; a complete floater all around. This attractive, parallel growth duo has rich, cherry red color, glassy luster and it stands out amongst the crowd of the more common single floater crystals. Both crystals are lustrous and translucent to partially gemmy in places with the large octahedron measuring 1.8 cm in length and the sidecar at 6mm. This thumbnail is a floater and complete all around. Mass of 4.35 grams.
