Large, very attractive single crystal of Topaz, with associations. The Topaz is almost completely gemmy, with a luster that ranges from silky to superb (face dependent). The Topaz is 4.6 cm tall and has a mass of approx. 60 g. The crystal rests on euhedral Feldspar, and included in the Topaz is a 2 mm Spessartine. Overall, this is an aesthetic, and quite unusual, specimen.
