A jumbled mass of Quartz and Magnesite crystals with occasional rare, pink colored Topaz crystals. Most of the Topaz crystals have been damaged, but in a recessed, protected area, the are two intact crystals in excellent condition. Both crystals have a high glassy luster, have excelent color, well formed and are gemmy. This is classic material, seldom available and featured in the Mineralogical Record's Topaz special edition published in the mid 90s.
Condition: Fairly Good
Flaws: Only two of the Topaz crystals are complete, the rest are not. Also, a few of the Quartz crystals are incomplete and some of the Magnesite crystals are either cleaved or have internal cleaves.
