Gem mining area (literally "Coconut Branch"). Used to be the only locality for painite, until early 2005.

The locality is situated in the foothills of the Let-nyo-taung. The principle rocks of Ohn-gaing are syenite, marble, gneiss. Rubies and sapphires, small to medium in size (usually not exceeding 3 carats) of faceting and cabochon grades are mined in lebin (lebin-dwin [glossary item missing]) and open-pit mining schemes. Good-quality star sapphire, low-quality star ruby, spinel, garnet, amethyst and schorl are also found in the alluvium. In a small skarn (between gneiss and marble) situated at the edge of Ohn-gaing village, sinhalite, serendibite, amblygonite-montebrasite, jeremejevite and other rare minerals are found. - Ted Themelis (2008) Gems and Mines of Mogok

NOTE: The vast majority of painite images displayed here are in fact from Wet-Loo. They have certainly been attributed to this locality based on the erroneous assumption that Ohngaing (being the TL) is the major source for painite.
