U6Y-V8XSpinel : MgAl2O4

Multiple photos available
Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin District, Mandalay Division, Burma

Dimensions: 0.5 cm x 0.4 cm x 0.1 cm

0.5 x 0.4 x 0.1 cm. This “floater” twinned crystal is a classic Burmese "Ruby Spinel" with relatively sharp, lustrous faces, but the most interesting aspect of the piece is the fact that it is a rarely seen “Star of David” twin with a vibrant, gemmy red interior color. This piece was mined around 2003.
