Imperial topaz is a highly collectible gem species, and this one has an especially desirable feature: it is a doubly terminated crystal. This is a fine, large gem crystal with deep, shimmering golden-orange color, excellent luster, and classic internal fire. The crystal is very sharply formed, with excellent terminations at both ends, and is very nearly pristine. Weighs 35 grams. From an old collection that was put together between the 1930s and 1960s by Carey Melville, a professor at Clark University.
