Topaz, Albite
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 3.5 x 2.0 x 1.6 cm
An extraordinarily gemmy crystal of topaz, doubly-terminated (very unusual for a matrix-free gem crystal!), decorated with snowy crystals of albite. Where it tapers at the bottom are not contacts, but FACES; the crystal is complete all over! These are much better in person! 3.5 x 2 x 1.6 cm
