This small specimen consists of a single well-formed Topaz crystal. It is in excellent condition and has the standard pale pink-brown color and vitreous luster. However, rhyolite inclusions completely spoil its clarity, rendering it translucent at best. Two or three rounded bixbyite crystals are attached at its base, and the piece is affixed to a square acrylic base.
