For sale is a RARE double terminated painite crystal with ruby and sapphire, from Mogok, Burma. Painite is a very rare calcium zirconium aluminum borate-oxide. This crystal was part of a one off fine in 2005 , we obtained it in a trip to Burma , and have been hanging on to it, now its time to let it go. Amazing ruby crystal to 4mm, and very uncommon is a couple of pink sapphires also adorning the painite crystal. The Arkenstone has one a bit bigger than this, but with smaller and fewer corundom,s, and in my opinion much poorer definition, priced at USD$2,500! Great fluorescence.

For sale is a exceptionally good pargasite specimen, with minor associated spinel on marble, from Vietnam. We acquired this gem on our recent visit to the mine in Vietnam. Pargasite is an uncommon member of the amphibole group, an unusually colorful one, at that. This piece is superb with it gemmy intense green color, and extra large coverage, Pristine. Vietnamese specimens are being vacuumed up by Chinese dealers and are becoming very difficult to source in any quality. Museum quality.

For sale is a gemmy single phenakite crystal from Burma. This is a near perfect example of this rare Beryllium silicate. I know its not seen clearly in the pics, but when the termination is looked at closely this has the classic "drill bit" twinning terminations. We obtained this on our recent visit to Burma, these are now as rare as "hens teeth" to obtain, in decent size. This is mor gemmy and cleaner than the pics indicate. Note our prices are in Australian dollars, compare!
