These are the rare authentic Burmese Phenakite with at least 90% intact naturally terminated tips on their pillar body (pillar bodies are broken of course at certain points near the root, to extract them from their matrix). Most pieces of good Burmese Phenakite today are small fragmented pieces without terminations, these natural faceted pieces are hard to find and excellent for full Phenakite vibrational power.
Note that Phenakite has an extremely shallow angle of the termination at the tip!
It is only slightly raised from a flat surface at the tip, very different from the very sharp angle terminations of Quartz and other stones. (We find in our energetic testing that this very shallow angle helps the Phenakite to bring the Divine Plane energy into manifestation towards the Etheric and Physical levels.)
Good: Translucent, more milky and with inclusions, occasional brownish tones.
Better: Higher grade, mostly transparent with inclusions and occasional light brown tones.
Best: Very High Grade, brighter with over 90% transparent with very few small inclusions and no brownish tone to the naked eye.
