It has been next to impossible to obtain fine quality Spinel specimens from Burma these days it seems. To find gem quality crystals is extremely difficult these days. This beautiful "floater" group is a classic Burmese "Ruby Spinel" with a rarely seen quartet of sharp, defined, lustrous, octahedral faces. The piece is about 90% WATER-CLEAR with a vibrant red interior color. Fine quality textbook octahedrons for the species. It's rare to find two Spinels intergrown from Burma, but I can't remember the last time I saw four together like this. The best of these specimens are simply the finest in the world for what they are. This is an example of a non-pegmatite gem mineral for which many collectors probably do not have a good specimen in their collections.
