Corundum var. Sapphire - Crystal and Cabochon
stock #20.1-290
Ohngaing, Mogok Valley, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
4 x 2.2 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $130


Deep blue hexagonal crystal of Sapphire that is doubly terminated (though more crudely at the bottom) and is complete. A few small bits of Calcite is seen on some faces but this is mostly all Corundum. Included with this specimen is a 1.2 CM cabochon cut from another crystal of the same locality. The pair of Sapphires are somewhat translucent and have some inclusions that add interest. A good cut and rough combo from the famed region of Mogok.
Ruby- red Corundum
stock #18.1-154A
Ohngaing, Mogok Valley, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
3.1 x 1.1 x .9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $850
Spring update

Rich red color Corundum crystal that is crude but complete and translucent throughout. Burmese (Mogok) Rubies are the most valued Ruby in the world and very few crystal specimens are available. This is a complex crystal with some etching (looks "melted" in spots) and recrystallization. Looks good on all sides, this is a sizable 24.5 Carat stone.
Sapphire -blue Corundum crystal
stock #18.1-153A
Ohngaing, Mogok Valley, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
3.7 x 2.1 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Spring update

A complete, somewhat crude, deep blue Sapphire crystal. Several small pits and cavities in some faces are filled with muscovite and some purplish sapphire chunks as well. Some transparent and translucent areas are seen but the majority is nearly opaque. A nice example of a real Mogok Sapphire that is not top gem grade but also not priced in the 6 figures. Nice specimen, these are not often available as every scrap of color seems to be cutup very quickly.
