A superb, very large gem-quality champagne-colored Topaz crystal on quartz from the world famous Mogok District in Myanmar. This district produced some world-class topaz crystals from a major find in 2006 at the Sakangyi pegmatites, in which hundreds of kilograms of fine topaz, quartz, and beryl crystals were recovered. While topaz had been found in the past in high-quality crystals in the Mogok District, this find set a new standard both in size and quality. This is one of the better large single topaz crystals from the find, with exceptional clarity, color, and luster, and is perched aesthetically on a large clear quartz crystal. An incredible topaz from an important global locale. Read more about the 2006 Sakangyi find in Issue #4 of 'Minerals' Magazine (2012). Tom Spann photo. Ex - Dave Matak Collection
