Topaz on Quartz with Muscovite etc
stock #20.1-105
Sakangyi-Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok, Pyin-Oo-Lwin,
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
4.7 x 4.2 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $260
Spring 2020

Several glass clear, colorless Topaz crystals in perfect condition are sticking out of a Quartz crystal matrix. From the Pegmatite of Sakangyi, which had been the source of the best of the Myanmar Topaz, but is now idle. In fine condition, this is a nice example of the occurrence and looks fine from several angles.
Spinel on Quartz and Calcite
stock #18.1-995
Pein Pyit, Mogok, Sagaing District
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
2.8 x 2.3 x 1.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $350


Well exposed, complete octahedron of ruby Spinel perched on a sliver of matrix. A few tiny flecks pf Pyrite are present as well, but mostly this is about the deep red Spinel crystal. This has some of the typical pitting, rounded edges and adhering matrix but is otherwise a very pretty dark red gem crystal, There are a few small gemmy Spinel seen with magnification on the flat sides of the matrix, they are almost invisible by naked eye. Myanmar has a well deserved reputation for exceptional gem crystals, especially for Rubies. However for hundreds of years Spinel were often substituted for Ruby. The gem fields in Mogok produce far more Spinel than Ruby, and it has been increasing in acceptance as a legitimate and valued gem. This is a nice affordable crystal that is above average in quality.
Topaz - textbook form and transparency
stock #18.1-498
Sakangyi-Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok, Pyin-Oo-Lwin,
Mogok, Myanmar (Burma)
3.9 x 2.1 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $480
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.
Phenakite - Untwinned crystals on matrix
stock #18.1-157
Phenakite mine, Khetchel Village, Molo Quarter, Momeik Township, Kyaukme
Shan State, Myanmar (Burma)
4.6 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Worldwide mix summer

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.
Topaz -gem clear crystal
stock #18.1-152A
Sakangyi-Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok, Pyin-Oo-Lwin,
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
3 x 2.2 x 1.8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $220
Spring update

A single glass clear crystal that is in person colorless and bright. A few tiny lines and veils are seen inside but nearly all is facet grade. A choice Topaz from the legendary Mogok gem tract. No damage, a few faces have a light frosting but most are smooth, sharp and clear.
Topaz with Quartz and Clevlandite
stock #18.1-155A
Sakangyi-Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok, Pyin-Oo-Lwin,
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
5.5 x 4.9 x 3.7 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $1250
Spring update

Super clear gem Topaz on Clevlandite with smokey Quartz in an esthetic cluster. The main Topaz stands well above the matrix and is perfctly transparent fromall views. There is no damage, a few internal veils are seen from some angles but do not reach the surface. All faces are glassy and sharp, an undamaged textbook quality cluster.
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.
