While not pristine, this is a major, fairly important locality topaz crystal for the county. It has great color, really even ore intense sky blue than you'd expect from the more famous Little Three Mine elsewhere in the county. It has more intensity and more luster, in fact. There is a fair amount of edge wear, particularly on the righthand side as we clearly show. Nevertheless, it displays well in a case as color-flash, and is an important piece for a locality suite from San Diego that for the color/size/price balance seemed to me to be a pretty good deal.
