Ex. Martin Lewadny
A 5.2 x 2.6 cm, extremely gemmy and lustrous, light cognac-colored topaz crystal is aesthetically set in front of rosettes of bladed cleavelandite and is beautifully accented by small topaz crystals. Very 3-dimensional overall. The very complex termination area of this beauty is water-clear. A classic and beautiful example of the species and locale from the Marty Lewadny Collection.
