This single Topaz crystal is in excellent condition, showing no damage, and has very good orthorhombic prismatic form. It has a pale brown coloration with hints of orange and pink and is transparent and very clear, but only near its termination. It contains an increasing concentration of rhyolite inclusions towards its base, which is opaque. Another, smaller Topaz crystal extends from near its termination and 9 or 10 tiny bixbyite cubes are attached down near its base. These cubes do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in diameter but have good form and the standard black color and submetallic luster.
