    I returned from Borneo tour a couple of weeks ago, and am slowly sorting through the pictures. Here are a few Jewel orchids I saw in the jungle.

    These three are found in Borneo Highlands, only plants, no bloom.

    These are found in Sabah, Mt Kinabalu area.

    The pic 3 shows a colony of them, with pic 4 shows the flower of the plant. We tried really hard not to step on any while photographing.
