Topaz var. Imperial Topaz
Miniature, 4.2 x 2.3 x 1.7 cm
Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil

A superb and sizeable mostly gem crystal of the prized "Imperial" Topaz from the locality famous for these golden crystals. This crystal is complete all around and undamaged with only very minor chatter along the edges, with a sharp, perfect termination. It has super luster. The golden-amber color is intense and under some lighting conditions the crystal actually has a pinkish red overtone to it. This fine crystal weighs 30 grams.
