Here is an important example of Johachidolite, among the best known for this very rare calcium-aluminum borate that came in large crystals only in a few small pockets from Myanmar in the early 2000s. The crystal is large for the species at 2.6 cm in length and 2 cm in width with a rich yellow-orange color. It has fairly well-defined faces and is associated with a bit of white Quartz for accent and contrast. This Johachidolite specimen is large and very rare for its size, making it an important specimen for this rare species from this part of the world; a crystal of 1 cm would be considered large. It is usually known only as grains or masses embedded in its host rock. This crystal from the Larson collection is the largest found with any degree of crystal faces and form to it, and is perhaps the largest, high quality example of the species known (per Bill Larson, but also compared to any we have seen). A spectacular rarity.
