Phenakite is a species that is found in a wide range of crystal habits from rhombs to prisms to tabular and elongated twins. Some of the most attractive gem quality Phenakite crystals ever found are the recently discovered specimens from the Mogok Valley of Myanmar (Burma).

This specimen is a fantastic display piece featuring a superb, beautiful, gemmy, sharply terminated, colorless "drill bit"-twinned Phenakite crystal from Ohngaing measuring 1.3 cm, but the most important aspect is that it's on MATRIX! I would estimate that about 1% of the Phenakites from this locality are found on matrix, and this piece is highly aesthetic to boot. The matrix is composed of cream colored Feldspar and translucent Smoky Quartz crystals, which play nicely against the Phenakite. If you look at the termination of Phenakite, you can see very slight reentrant faces, creating a unique effect rarely seen in Phenakite. If you collect thumbnails, minerals of Myanmar or just worldwide Phenakites, don't miss out on this one.
