A GORGEOUS, gemmy and lustrous, PURPLE topaz from a BRAND NEW FIND at Ouro Preto, Brazil. The color saturation and luster are off the charts on this beauty, which has a sharp, pyramidal termination. Purple is an uncommon topaz color for Ouro Preto. Trivial termination edge wear is barely noticeable and is certainly not a detraction. 19.16 carats or nearly 4 grams.
