Four intersecting Topaz crystals make up this thumbnail specimen. One of these crystals is incomplete due to breakage, but the rest are in excellent condition. They range in length from 0.3 - 0.9" (0.8 - 2.3 cm) and show very good orthorhombic prismatic form, though their intergrowth with each other has caused some warping. They have the pale brown color with a pinkish tinge that is standard for Topaz from this locality and are transparent. Their clarity varies widely from very dim to very high due to rhyolite inclusions. The piece is affixed to an acrylic base with an adhesive putty.
