Palelni mine, Khetchel Village, Molo Quarter, Momeik Township, Shan Sate, Burma
Just north of Mogok, in Burma, is a new locality for this mineral, northeast of Momeik. This attractive, crystal is water-clear for the most part, but with slight inclusions of an associated mineral at the base, its triangular habit is particularly attractive, measuring 4 x 3.5 x 1.5cm, on a custom Lucite base; offered together with a fine cushion-shaped stone weighing approximately 15.29 carats and measuring 23.6 x 13.6 x 8.6mm.
