Here we have a beautiful association of light sherry colored Topaz crystals with Quartz. 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 specimens are very sharp, gemmy and glassy with a light sherry color; it is really the aesthetic quality of the two Topaz crystals growing on each side of a thin, frosted Quartz crystal shard.
