Topaz on Quartz
Sakangyi, Mogok, Burma
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 5.8 x 3.2 cm
Ex. William (Bill) Larson
Erupting straight up from two glassy and gemmy, colorless quartz crystals to 4.5 cm in length, is a limpid, glassy and gemmy, colorless topaz crystal. This gem is bright and pretty - 2 inches (just over 5 cm) in length in total. The topaz is superbly centered high on its matrix. The mass is 114 grams. 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.
