Thumbnail, 2.5 x 1.2 x 0.7 cm
Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil

This is another fine, glassy and gemmy topaz crystal with the much rarer, rich purple coloration. This pocket produced very few specimens, in 2017, and is a once-a-decade occurrence. The crystal is gemmy, lustrous, and has deep color - making these purple topaz unique in the world. 4.65 grams (approx. 23 carats)
