Name: Rubellite v Elbaite
origin: Ketchel village Myanmar
Size: 25 x 20 x 20 mm
Comments: Obtained as Olenite? this specimen is a magnificent deep red very hard to match for quality or crystal form. They are also found as mushroom shaped crystals from the same locality.They grow over schorl and are generally associated with Petalite, Quartz, albite etc. these are a must have for any respectable micro collection. I will be displaying some of them sometime in the future. This is a beautiful specimen on a cleavelandite base.
