Item Description

Imperial topaz from Ouro Preto, Brazil is a desired topaz varietal, most collectors look for. This gorgeous, gemmy and lustrous, striated crystal fragment (a center portion, one would assume) has beautiful, golden-orange color and excellent luster and fire. Both ends are cleaved, though. So, this is excellent carving-grade material for cabochon or carving, as its of good size and will be inexpensive. 55 grams.
