Here is something supremely fascinating and beautiful.  When one sees such perfectly formed gem crystals from Mogok, the mind immediately goes to Spinel - this area is famous for them.  However, this one holds a splendid secret - it is, in fact, pink Sapphire that has taken on a pseudo-cubic form.  If you look closely, you will see a little extra face and realize that the shape is not quite 'right' for Spinel.  What a little gemological treasure - and the fact that it is flawless and perfectly gemmy is such a great bonus.  Remarkable!
