Gorgeous, very atypical Topaz from Shigar valley in Pakistan. This sinegle, doubly-terminated Topaz has mulitpkle teminations at each end, almost as if it was being etched as it grew, to create an amazing visual effect. It looks like paired sets of gemmy, sherry-colored mountain ranges, and sharp, Himalayan peaks, at that. This is an aesthetic bargain, for how neat it is.
