Elbaite spheres on matrix

From Burma come these new, very interesting Elbaites (Rubellites) that are different from those in previous finds. The Elbaites are in the form of spheres or arborescent sprays on white Calcite or Quartz matrix, so the contrast between the white and red makes them very attractive. From this important find we have selected the specimens that have, in our opinion, the best esthetics, brilliance and definition of form. In all cases the Elbaite is aerial on the matrix. As many of the specimens from this find had some form of coating of some sort of Kaolin, we avoided them and went for the ones that have a ‘fresh’ look.
For you information, as no one could tell us if any analysis had been done of this find, we decided to have the analyzed. They are Elbaite, and while they do contain some Calcium in their composition it is not enough for them to be Liddicoatite. So they are definitely Elbaite.
