Here you get a fairly big taaffeite, quite rounded and with one polished face was done for identification purpose. Newest analysis have shown that the most of the Burmese taaffeite crystals have been musgravite, I can’t be sure about this for this specimen cause to distinguish these two species you need advance instruments. But for sure you get a piece from the taaffeite family.
