Mineral Specimen #5224 Pink Topaz on Quartz with Included Hematite
Brumado, Bahia, Brazil
Pink Topaz crystals are very rare with Brumado being the premier location for them. On this specimen, there are several scattered across the Quartz crystals. There are clear, sugary looking, micor crystals of an unidentifed materail on the surface of most of the Topaz crystals. There is also a dusting of small dark colored micro crystals of Hematite included just below the surface of one of the Quartz. Included within the Quartz, in two areas, is an unidentified bright green colored material.
Flaws: Most of the Quartz crystals are not terminated. One is intact and it is double terminated. All but one of the Topaz crystals is in excellent condition.
