This single crystal of imperial topaz weighs an astonishing 27 grams (125 carats). It is a superb example of this classic species from the world-famous locality that has produced some of the most colorful topaz gems in the world. This crystal is very gemmy, and is colored an intense, saturated golden-yellow sherry color that is 100% natural. It is complete, with no damage, and has a superb wet-look luster. The tip is glassy and transparent, with a sharp, steep, pyramidal termination. The inside of the crystal features the highly desirable sparks and shimmers which make imperial topaz so unique and prized. I selected this fine crystal from a superb lot I was offered by a wholesale dealer in Ouro Preto during my 2016 trip to Brazil.
