Topaz Imperial Golden Crystal ~7to 8mm Brazil (carded)

Topaz Imperial Golden Crystal ~7to 8mm Brazil (carded)

Ref: 23-894

Topaz, an aluminium silicate material, is a highly valued gemstone and the BIRTHSTONE for NOVEMBER. It forms colourless to staw yellow, bluish or brown, transparent to subtranslucent prismatic crystals (orthorhombic). Fine golden-brown material - like this crystal from Brazil - is sometimes called 'Imperial Topaz'. Topaz occurs in high temperature veins, in pegmatites, and in granites and rhyolites. Hardness is 8 (on the Mohs scale of 1 to 10) and it has one highly perfect cleavage. Common Topaz is widespread and fine gem material comes from Saxony, the Ural Mountains, Brazil, Japan & Mexico.
Precious Topaz should not be confused with yellow (CITRINE) or Smokey Quartz which is sometimes incorrectly described as 'gold topaz'.
