Pink Topaz
Thumbnail, 2.5 x 0.9 x 0.8 cm
Katlang, Mardan District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan

This is really quite an amazing pink Topaz thumbnail from the famous and rather small despoit in Katlang, which has produced the only Topaz of such color in the Himalayas. They are extremely rare, and good, aesthetic specimens are hard to find. The luster is superb, as is the gemminess, and the color is a beautiful rich lavender-pink hue. The pics tell the story, I think. This is a hefty thumbnail, at 29.50 cts in weight. ex. old Obodda Collection material
