Topaz
stock #AC-372
Jos Plateau
Plateau State, Nigeria
4.2 x 1.6 x 2.3 CM (miniature)
price: $150
pre Tucson 2015 update

An older specimen that came out in the 1960's, this is an alluvial piece that is distinctly waterworn. The remarkable thing is that the crystal form is very clear despite the tumbling and softened edges, it still has a gemmy clear core, no internal cleaves and typical habit. Ex Schortmann's minerals (with label), they were the first to offer Nigerian Topaz that was collected by missionaries in that period from gravel bars. This has a very faint blue green hue but in most lighting seems milky white.
