Pretty big, prismatic Uvite Crystal from Burma. The specimen is kind of doubly terminated the base is recrystallized. The crystal is made of a bundle of intergrown prismatic crystal quite similar to pinkish Liddicoatite crystals from Vietnam. The Vanadium content is quite high and the specimen discloses a deep red coloration under the Chelsea filter.
