Bragging: My second star padparadscha

Allow me to proudly present:
(not for sale)

4.33 star padparadscha from Burma.







As some may remember I had found my first star pad in 2008 and ever since hunted for another one, without success until now!

This 4.33 is certified as 'star pad' from IGI in Antwerp:



(I cropped the report to get it under 600pix not to hide the IDcode )

In my time in Sri Lanka I was always told star pads don't exist, and remarkably both stone I later found came from Burma and I never heard of one from Ceylon.

Richard H. confirms this in an essay on pads:
"Phenomena:
While star sapphires in other colors are common, star padparadschas are practically unknown. This is because yellow and orange sapphires from Sri Lanka generally lack the concentrations of well-defined silk necessary to produce distinct asterism."
