Painite with Corundum (variety ruby).
 

TL17G9: Painite is surely the most important mineralogical discovery of 2006. It is a very, very rare species and, in the past, only few pieces had been found. Recent finds in Myanmar gave some few more pieces.
In the case of this sample, we must add to its rarity the extremely unusual fact that Painite is on matrix and, more, its with small Corundum (variety ruby) crystals. Furthermore, as detailed picture shows, its upper part is well finished. Then, considering its size, that its on matrix, that the piece is undamaged, its termination and the accompanying Corundum we can say its really an exceptional piece.
