Sinhalite is a very rare gem that was long thought to be a brown variety of Peridot but in 1952 an investigation determined it to be a new mineral. It has weak pleochroism from pale brown to yellow to greenish brown. The most notable occurances of Sinhalite are from the gem gravels of Sri Lanka in the Ratnapura district, at Nivitigala, Balangoda, Nirialla; around Elahera and Eheliyagoda; and elsewhere. Also from Mogok, Myanmar, in gem gravels. Non-gem quality material can be found at a few other locations around the world.
