Mina Veronica, Copetillo, Zacatecas, Mexico
Toenail, 2.9 x 2.9 x 2.1 cm
A very aesthetic specimen of wonderfully sharp crystals of topaz on a nicely-trimmed matrix. The crystals are in pristine condition, and all the terminations are complete. The crystals are extremely gemmy, with portions being included by hematite, giving them their rust color (which is typical for these, but often you do not see the nice gemmy sections that you do here). The longest crystal here measures 2 cm.
