Item Description

Vivid, rich blue euclase of this hue comes, rather came, only from small workings in this topaz mine, in intermittent spurts from the 1960s on. A recent find came out actually just a few years ago, some of large crystals, but few with this rich classic color. This is an old specimen, and they turn up from time to time on the market but in this quality are fairly rare. It is a competition-level thumbnail with an unusually sharp termination and the most intense blue color you can ask for in the species (which is, after all, what this mine was made famous for). Valued $1800, this is a thumbnail of high level from the well-known thumbnail collection of Marilyn Dodge
