Topaz, Fluorite
Baha, Braldu Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Toenail, 3.0 x 3.3 x 2.9 cm
Here we have a classic association of light sherry colored Topaz with beautiful contrasting green Fluorite. Pakistan has long produced some of the finest Topaz specimens in recent memory, and to find them with any kind of associations is remarkable. The Topaz crystals on this specimen are very sharp, gemmy and glassy with a medium sherry color, but the accenting gemmy green Fluorite cuboctahedron really compliments them well. To top it all off, they are sitting a beautiful snow white bed of Feldspar crystals.
