Sapphire -blue Corundum crystal
Ohngaing (Ohn Gaing; Ohn Kai)Mogok Valley, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin
3.7 x 2.1 x 1.8 CM (miniature)
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.
