Topaz with Cassiterite and Apatite- Vintage specimen
Ehrenfriedersdorf, Erzgebirge
Saxony, Germany
7.3 x 6.3 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $1200
Spring update

An old Saxony specimen with several lustrous Cassiterites to 2 CM mixed with a hundreds of small, gemmy Topaz crystals and Apatites as well. Ex Charles Noll Collection, with a very esthetic addition of what seems to be rich green Allophane encrusting both species. I have only seen one other similar old specimen (19th century vintage). Vintage label included. In very good condition, some minor chipping seen only with magnification. Crystallized on all sides.
