- Ex. William (Bill) Larson
This is a limpid, glassy and gemmy champagne-colored topaz from Mogok. It has an unusual, complex termination, and the prism faces clearly exhibit growth striations and etch patterns both. This is literally a "jewel" in how it presents. The mass is 56 grams. It is comparable in form to some recent topaz from Argentina a few years ago, but this has more color saturation. From the Burma collection of "Burma Bill" Larson, who has for decades brought out gems and then minerals as this region opened up to the trade in specimens.
