During my 2016 trip to Brazil I visited an imperial topaz mine near Ouro Preto. The miners descended on me like flies, each offering packets of topaz crystal for sale. This was one my prized acquisitions from that memorable day. It is a gem crystal with a superb termination, with brilliant wet-look luster and an intense sherry color that is especially rich and appealing. The fire and brilliance of this piece are highly characteristic of the classic, gorgeous material form this renowned locale.
