Topaz on Quartz
Schneckenstein cliff, Klingenthal, Vogtland, Saxony, Germany
Miniature, 5.1 x 4.6 x 2.2 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda
A gemmy and lustrous, 1.6 cm, yellow Topaz crystal with a complex termination nicely set on a quartz-rich matrix from the famous Schneckenstein cliff of Saxony, Germany. The luster is excellent, and the yellow gemminess is quite eye-catching. The smaller Topaz crystal is a nice accent. Old labels included. Circa 1800s. Classic old material, seldom seen on the market in gem crystals.
