Colorless to light sherry colored Topaz crystals from Burma are available and in demand as classics of the region in both the gem trade and in the minerals market; however, exquisite, completely limpid, glassy, sublimely sherry colored Topaz crystals like this are the exception and VERY rare. The prism and pyramidal faces on this crystal are remarkably well formed and sharp with a truly brilliant luster. The geometry of the crystal faces, the rich color, the complete gemminess and the superior luster are mesmerizing on this superb Burmese Topaz crystal. Note that they should be kept in the dark, or at least out of sunlight and UV spectrum, to avoid color fade over time. This stunning miniature is competitive level, and has a mass of 46 grams.
