Large, Natural Topaz Crystal - Brazil
This clear/white topaz crystal is a natural beauty, without any kind of man-made enhancement! It stands about 2.5 inches high, is 1 3/8 inches thick, and weighs 7.4 ounces! It has a complete, terminated tip, and all-natural crystal faces, most of which are lustrous. The back and bottom sides show areas of secondary growth, and there is just a little bit of matrix, maybe microcline, trapped in the growth layers on the back. It's very gemmy, especially in the exterior 1/4 or 3/8 inch. There are some natural inclusions, few of which reach the surface, and none of which jeopardize its structure; it's a very solid piece. The interior parallel growth layers reflect light well, so it lights itself up in almost any lighting. The edges are in very good condition too. An excellent specimen!
