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.
