Now much more commonly see as colorless stones from Brazil, this is the golden-brown variety that is well known from Burma.  The color actually shifts a bit in various lights, not unlike Turkish Diaspore. The photo perhaps overstates this shift a bit, but it is certainly discernible.  Good size - we rarely see these offered much any more.
