Topaz- gem clear crystal on matrix
stock #20.1-271
Sakangyi-Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok, Pyin-Oo-Lwin,
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
4.3 x 3 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $380


Water clear Topaz with perfect form perched on a jagged pegmatite matrix. From the Sakangyi Mine which produced much fine Topaz at one time, this locality has been idle for a few years but is likely not fully exhausted. Very glassy luster, a few faces show extra modifications but overall a classic textbook crystal form. Quite a lot of Sakangyi Topaz had frosted faces and distinct striations, but some smaller crystals like this have faces with no visible striations but have a few termination faces showing a bubbly texture. All in all a pretty prism. No damage.

Teofilo Otoni, Mucuri Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil

price: $450
Spring 2020

A main crystal that is nearly all gem clear and is over 6 CM tall shows glass clear faces on 3 sides with one face etched, included and with complex modifications. The condition is very good, the upper half is all gem clear and the lower part has additional smaller crystals attached. A very nice Topaz from the prolific region of Teofilo Otoni, this weighs a hefty 91.4 grams.

Sakangyi-Kyauk-Pyat-That, Mogok, Pyin-Oo-Lwin,
Mandalay Division, Myanmar (Burma)
4.7 x 4.2 x 2.8 CM (miniature)

Spring 2020

Several glass clear, colorless Topaz crystals in perfect condition are sticking out of a Quartz crystal matrix. From the Pegmatite of Sakangyi, which had been the source of the best of the Myanmar Topaz, but is now idle. In fine condition, this is a nice example of the occurrence and looks fine from several angles.

Topaz on Rhyolite (classic / historic)

Collected by the famed Ed Over in 1932, later in the George White collection, then sold by Kristalle to John Marshall in 2003 (his card and labels are included). A cute, gemmy sherry colored crystal with nice contrast to the matrix. A small rough area is noted where there has been a contact but otherwise a fine small piece with an antique turned wooden stand included (not seen in the photos). A choice piece of US mineralogical history.

Topaz - Classic Colorado

Tarryall Mt, Park County
Colorado, United States

A very nice thumbnail with fine provenance. This was in the Warren Johansson Collection since September 1941, he obtained this from the legendary George M White. Warren was a student at that time and was very actively exchanging minerals while working on his Phd. George White is famed for his Topaz finds. This specimen has a flawless clear, undamaged Topaz crystal perched on contrasting matrix. A choice slice of mineral history.

A single glass clear crystal that is in person colorless and bright. A few tiny lines and veils are seen inside but nearly all is facet grade. A choice Topaz from the legendary Mogok gem tract. This is close to perfect on the upper crystal section, the lower part is contacted as seen. One edge has some .5 MM chips these are seen best with a 10X loupe, not readily seen by naked eye. Also a few faces have a light frosting but most are smooth, sharp and clear. As seen the condition is very fine overall, textbook sharp, clear and lustrous.
