Mineral Specimen #1882 Pink Topaz on Quartz with Magnesite
Brumado, Bahia, Brazil
There are a large number of rare, pink colored Topaz crystals scattered across this specimen on both sides. In places, there are clusters of crystals and in other places there are solitary crystals. The color is a deep pink bordering on violet and the crystals have a high luster. The Quartz crystals also have a high luster and quite clear in the terminations. The surface of Quartz has a dark, scattered coating of Hematite. The center of the specimen (on both sides) has small, white rhombic crystals of Magnesite. The specimen is in good condition with the exception of a few broken Topaz crystals. This is a very large specimen for this combination of pink Topaz on Quartz.
