Dec 2018

An "air clear" colorless Topaz crystal with perfect form from the famed Mogok gem region of Myanmar. The termination has additional face modifications and the condition is perfect, undamaged and with no internal cleaves. The Topaz of the Sakangyi can sometimes have an exceptional level of optical clarity, but most have some clouds or cleaves. Competition grade miniature that is especially impressive in person. So clear and glasslike it is difficult to photograph.

Sharp glassy crystals of Phenakite perched on Microcline and Quartz. Most Myanmar Phenakite is twinned, this is the more rare untwinned form of blocky crystals which are in fine condition. Matrix examples are also quite uncommon, most specimens are loose single six sided prisms. A good value for a choice, uncommon type Phenakite.

1.5 x 1.3x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)

Spring update

Transparent, blood red and complete. A single octahedron of Spinel from the famed Mogok gem field. The edges show typical rounding or "melted look" that is classic for this area. These are extracted as gem gravels by hand work as has been done for centuries. Since the mineral is so hard and abrasion resistant the form stays relatively sharp and lustrous. with 10-20 x magnification only slight signs of abrasion can be seen. 16.8 Carats in weight. A nice colorful octahedron of "ruby" Spinel.

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 (Ohn Gaing; Ohn Kai)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.
