Tepetate, Mun. de Villa de Arriaga, San Luis Potosi, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.9 x 2.4 cm
A fabulous cluster of GEM topaz crystals from Mexico! Anchoring it is a crystal measuring an amazing 5.5 cm, with both terminations intact and gemmy as could be! Three smaller crystals spray out from it, and are equally gemmy. It has the very light sherry color typical for this locality, and a fine glassy luster. A bit of matrix on the back holds the specimen solidly together. Exceptional! The quality here is so good that it LOOKS like it's from Utah, but it really did come out of Mexico from a collection to me.
