When these excellent Petalites started hitting the market, I was immediately drawn to their unique color and excellent crystallization. Keep in mind, nearly all Petalite you'll see from around the world is colorless, and if they're actually crystallized, it's typically rather crude. The specimens from the Palelni Mine are arguably the finest euhedral Petalite crystals in the world for the simple fact that some of them are notably well-formed with smooth defined faces and little to no etching.
As mentioned, the piece has a wonderful "champagne" color and the interior of the crystal is nearly 100% gem quality to boot. One edge on the lower portion of the crystal has a small contacted area, but overall it's a very worthwhile gem crystal specimen that would fit nicely in many collections. VERY few of these are on the market now, so if you missed out back when they were coming out of the ground, this is a good chance to get your hands on one for a great price. I bought this attractive thumbnail specimen directly from my source in Mogok back in 2008, and it was part of my personal collection for years.
