A crystal of sinhalite from Mogok, Burma


, : A crystal of sinhalite from Mogok, Burma. Mineralogical Magazine 31(242): 978-979

Records the discovery at Mogok, Burma, of a crystal of sinhalite, the first known with well-developed faces. The crystal is orthorhombic prismatic with basal pinacoid terminations. Although the crystal is somewhat water-worn, interfacial angles were determined approximately, and, by calculations using axial ratios previously determined by x-ray methods, indices were ascribed to the faces.
