Rutile is rather rare from Myanmar in my experience. I've only seen a handful of pieces over the years. This piece is a well-crystallized twin specimen featuring very sharp, well-formed, lustrous, dark reddish-brown colored faces. The piece shows twinning in multiple directions which is accentuated by attractive striations on the crystal faces. When strongly backlit, the piece shows a tiny bit of internal color, but it's mostly opaque. An eye-catching thumbnail of this uncommon (for the locality) material.
Locality: Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin District, Mandalay Region, Myanmar (Burma)
Specimen Size: 1.4 x 1.3 x 1.1 cm (thumbnail)
