Chinese Topaz Specimens

   

Fine topaz crystals from China are known but not very common.  They are easily as nice as the best from the gem pegmatites of Pakistan and often look very much the same as the best from that country.  Colors range from light yellow to a rich, almost peach color.  Crystal forms can be exceedingly complex.  Good matrix specimens are always in demand.
