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 pegmatite specimens 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. 

 

 

 

OKN-988

OKN-988     Topaz     Southern Yunnan Prov., China.  Ex. Harold L. Dibble collection.  A very large crystal measuring 6 x 6 and 6.3 cm high.  Transparent with internal veils.  Numerous terminal faces, nice luster on all sides.  This is a more contemporary specimen (no more than 8 years old) and an excellent example of one of these.  I don't believe that I'd be able to get one this good at Tucson at the wholesale show for this price.  Only one small chip on backside.  Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.  Great topaz!  $1,900

Zero damage.  A very fine example of this new material.  Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.   600$
