Topaz- Imperial gem
Ouro Preto
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.3 x 1.9 x 1.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400


A sizable and fine elongated imperial Topaz from Ouro Preto with classic bright orange color. In person this is fully transparent and has glassy luster, a perfect pyramidal top termination and a more crude lower termination (doubly terminated) a chip is on the lower corner where this was removed it is not seen on most logical display angles, A contact along one edge is completely healed and recrystallized, overall this is in remarkably fine condition for such a large crystal. Wispy dark inclusions are noted and in the center of the crystal is the nice rose color that is especially desirable. Choice and better in person too.
