Topaz on Rhyolite (classic / historic)
Topaz Mountain, Thomas Range, Juab County
3.3 x 3.2 x 2.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
Collected by the famed Ed Over in 1932, later in the George White collection, then sold by Kristalle to John Marshall in 2003 (his card and labels are included). A cute, gemmy sherry colored crystal with nice contrast to the matrix. A small rough area is noted where there has been a contact but otherwise a fine small piece with an antique turned wooden stand included (not seen in the photos). A choice piece of US mineralogical history.
