Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah, U.S.A.
A single Topaz crystal comprises this specimen. This crystal is in moderately good condition, as its base shows some damage and what I believe is basal parting in one area. Its orthorhombic prismatic form is excellent and quite symmetrical, and its pale brown color and vitreous luster are standard for the locality. It is transparent and moderately clear due to many sprays of tiny black crystals that are included- I cannot identify these crystals, though they could be pseudobrookite, which is found in association at times. The piece is affixed to a flat acrylic base with an adhesive putty.
