It has been next to impossible to obtain fine quality Spinel specimens from Burma these days it seems. Matrix specimens of Spinel are uncommon, but to find gem quality crystals on matrix is extremely difficult. Here we have a classic Burmese "Ruby Spinel" crystal with relatively sharp, defined, lustrous, octahedral faces and a gemmy rich red color. This piece was mined around 2000. 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. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
