Topaz on Albite
Dassu, Gilgit, Pakistan
Cabinet, 9.5 x 7.1 x 6.1 cm
This is an excellent combo specimen that well represents the upper end of material from Pakistan, from this classic occurence. Three transparent, lustrous, champagne-colored crystals of topaz to 2.5 cm in length are aesthetically perched on and in snow white, lustrous, bladed albite. There are even a few, terminated, lustrous, beige muscovite crystals, to 2.0 cm across, strategically located on the display side. Very Nice! And, for the price, I think you get a lot of flash and gemminess for the buck!
