Item Description

Imperial topaz from Ouro Preto, Brazil is a Holy Grail topaz varietal, most collectors look for. This classic, gorgeous, gemmy and lustrous, complete all-around, striated crystal has beautiful, golden-orange color and excellent luster and fire. This is an excellent quality crystal. The bit of internal crazing adds much character. A trivial bit of sidewear is noted. 4 grams. Valued at $200-225. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON! We found this set-aside lot in the move, and I had bought it years ago in a large deal. I cannot replace them today for prices they go for here.
