A fine large gem topaz crystal with a beautiful pale champagne color from what many connoisseurs consider the best topaz pocket ever, discovered at the Sakangyi mines around a decade ago. Exhibits the mesmerizing clarity and complex morphology these topaz crystals are famous for. Minor black schorl tourmaline provides a nice contrast as well. Mark Cross photo.
