A large and very fine example of this much lesser known variety of Petalite from Burma.  The predominantly light golden-brown color will shift significantly under various lights - it tends much more toward a bright yellow, slightly greenish in natural daylight.  It is an odd and interesting mix of color, not unlike not unlike Turkish Diaspore in some respects.  Great larger size and freshly recut to excellent angles and proportions - a really fine example and quite uncommon in this quality.
