Topaz, Quartz, Schorl, Albite
Dassu (Dasso; Dusso), Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Cabinet, 10.2 x 10.2 x 6.5 cm
An INCREDIBLY FINE combination CABINET piece from Pakistan. A large, 5.6 x 4.0 cm, gemmy and lustrous, light-champagne-colored topaz crystal sits at a divergent angle to a 13.5 cm, water-clear, lightly frosted quartz crystal. The topaz has a wonderful, complex termination. The large crystals are beautifully accented by two, embedded schorl crystals and a bed of bladed, snow-white albite. Ex. Gene Meieran Collection.
