Dassu (Dasso; Dusso), Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 3.6 x 1.8 x 1.5 cm
A superbly gemmy, water-clear, totally transparent gem topaz crystal from this modern classic locality. It is mesmerizingly pure and clean. The crystal looks cut, it is so evenly formed. It is pristine and complete all around, all sides, except only a small bit of edge wear on the rear diagonal face as shown (and thus pristine on the display faces, in any case). Superb miniature, of a very high quality gem crystal of topaz. Ex. Charlie Key.
