A classic translucent pink mushroom-like crystal of Rubellite, a red variety of Tourmaline, stands vertically on a shard of translucent milky-tan Quartz from Momeik Township in Kyaukme District, Shan State, Myanmar (likely from the Palelni mine).  The Rubellite crystal measures to 2.5 cm wide and displays a multi-terminated termination of parallel habit crystals while at the base of the mushroom-shaped crystal is a development of botryoidal Rubellite.  A fascinating and highly aesthetic Tourmaline from Momeik.
