Burmese Topaz crystals are world famous for their characteristic complex terminations, gemminess, and style. This large crystal is nearly pristine with only a tiny bit of edge wear, and masses 800 grams (approx 2 pounds in weight). It is simply gorgeous. The clarity and transparency of this Topaz is striking, and the piece looks impressive on display. The termination is complex, interesting, and perfect. Amazingly, you can read right through it, through nearly 2 inches of gem Topaz! This is one of the finest Topaz specimens in the Larson Burma collection, of over 1000 Burmese specimens built between the late 1980s and 2008. If you put it on a shelf, you can see it from across the room. This specimen comes with a custom lucite base.
