Topaz, Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 3.7 x 3.2 cm
A SHOWY and EXCELLENT Erongo Mountains combination specimen of two, very gemmy and lustrous, mostly colorless topaz crystals in parallel growth aesthetically set in spires of glassy, water-clear smoky quartz. The bit of edge wear at the large smoky termination is barely noticeable. The topazes and smokies have amazing transparency. Excellent material, complete on three sides, from the Dave Mansfield Collection.
