Spinel- Gem octahedron

Mandalay division, Myanmar (Burma)
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.
